Murder On the Orient Express (watch the movie trailer)
This is a classic. A must read. Agatha Christie does a great job of setting up and doling out the facts/clues of this murder and all on a moving train! The movie version of this done in 1974 is a classic as well. It reads as a who’s who in Hollywood: Sean Connery (sigh!), Ingrid Bergman (great dowdy, German spinster), Anthony Hopkins, Vanessa Redgrave, John Gielgud (butler, of course), Jacqueline Basset (I love her clothes)… and the incomparable Albert Finney as Hercule Poirot – his character is masterfully done, as is the old woman played by Wendy Hiller. I love that thing she does with her mouth! You need to read it and see it if you haven’t! Read it first, of course. Don’t worry, it doesn’t spoil the movie. That is a feast for the eyes.
