About Murder on the Orient Express

Investigator Hercule Poirot (Albert Finney) is heading home aboard the Orient Express when a fellow passenger, American businessman Samuel Ratchett (Richard Widmark), is found murdered in this all-star whodunit by director Sidney Lumet, based on a novel Agatha Christie. Widely despised for his role in the kidnapping and death of a baby, Rachett had many enemies, so Poirot must sift through an eccentric group of suspects to find the killer.
