Movie Mondays- Murder on the Orient Express
Oh, Agatha Christie + so many wonderful actors! Of course Murder on the Orient Express is one of my favorite films! Murder and intrigue on a wonderfully old-fashioned train ride through the Orient.
The dialogue is witty, the plot is intriguing (without being too confusing), and the detective is a funny mustached man with a heavy accent and snobbish attitude.
Without giving too much away, someone is murdered on the train, and it seems that everyone has an alibi. Who could it be? Lauren Bacall? Anthony Perkins? Sean Connery? Heaven forbid, not Ingrid Bergman! But they’re all in this movie, and all put on a delightful show.
If you haven’t seen this Agatha Christie story on film, you simply must. And if you already have, well, watch it again!
