      Disadvantages

      An enjoyable work out for your little grey cells.

      A 1974 version of the Agatha Christie novel with an all star cast including - Lauren Bacall, Michael York, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery, John Geilgud, Vanessa Redgrave and Albert Finney as Poirot.

      The plot is a traditional Christie set up - a limited group of people in a situation - here The Orient Express train - and a murder. Fortuately the famous detective Hercule Poirot is also on board the train. Will he reach a conclusion with the many red herrings that also lurk on board - and will you agree with the conclusion to be put to the local police in the end?

      I love this film and can watch it again and again. What do I love - the plot, the acting, the musical score, the costumes, etc. The cast list give an indication of the quality you can expect from this film and I do not think it disappoints.

      I enjoy Albert Finney as Poirot in this film, but do not think that he brings the same amount of humour to the role as the Poirot portrayed by Peter Ustinov in later films, this is however a matter of personal taste and does not detract anything from the film for me.
