Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"Only by interrogating the other passengers could I hope to see the light, but when I began to question them, the light, as Macbeth would have said, thickened."
- Hercule Poirot (Albert Finney)
Academy Awards 1974 - Best Supporting Actress: Ingrid Bergman
Regardless of the dust that covers its brilliance, this is a mystery film absolutely worth re-jumping on board for. Full Review
Next Best Picture
[Lumet] uses the material only as a pretext for star turns, most of which turn much too heavily and much too slowly. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- Lumet overcomes his difficulties in great style, and we're never for a moment confused (except when we're supposed to be, which is most of the time). Full Review
The formula can't fail: a first class journey on the '30s Orient Express, meticulous detail, a murder with all suspects aboard. In fact, the most suspect thing is the comfortable complacency of it all. Full Review
...This feisty slice of old-fashioned escapism is far better than the slew of Identikit thrillers it inspired...
The idea is that everything will be more interesting if Sean Connery or Ingrid Bergman, rather than the characters they play, is suspected of having committed the foul deed. The device does not work, despite the [actors'] occasionally droll efforts. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/5 -- Very enjoyable, but frankly, too many stars for its own good. Full Review
Directed by Sidney Lumet, MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS is the definitive adaptation of Agatha Christie's classic mystery, which finds fastidious detective Hercule Poirot (Albert Finney) investigating the murder of an unsavory millionaire among the passengers of a luxury train. This stylish thriller crackles with witty dialogue, moody period-piece atmosphere, and superb performances from an all-star ensemble cast that includes Lauren Bacall, Martin Balsam, Jacqueline Bisset, Sean Connery, John Gielgud, Anthony Perkins, Vanessa Redgrave, and Ingrid Bergman (who won an Academy Award for her role).
