The Orient Express on the screen
2017’s Murder on the Orient Express is already attracting Oscar buzz and the 1974 classic was also one of the biggest hits of that year. It was nominated for six Oscars, winning one, best supporting actress, for INGRID BERGMAN. The AGATHA CHRISTIE tale has also had three other screening outings.
2001’s TV version starred ALFRED MOLINA, MEREDITH BAXTER and LESLIE CARON, and was updated into the present day. It had poor reviews.
2010’s TV version was an episode of the series Agatha Christie’s Poirot, and starred DAVID SUCHET, JESSICA CHASTAIN and HUGH BONNEVILLE.
In 2015, it was told again, this time as a Japanese mini-series!
