Hercule Poirot, the best detective in the world, decides to travel on the Orient Express. The train accidentally gets stopped because of a small avalanche. Little did he know that a murder was planned and that a person on this train was capable of committing such crime.Written by
During the effort to find a berth on the Orient Express, attendant Pierre Paul Michel stated that passengers had already booked all first & second class berths or seats, respectively. Second class passengers had a separate car from the first class passengers. The train pulled only four cars: a baggage, sleeping, dining, and bar car. In transit and after the train is forced to stop, the film does not show any second class passengers nor is any reference ever made to them. (This was also the case in the 1976 film of the same name, which starred Albert Finney.) See more »
