Tuesday, April 23rd – Murder on the Orient Express


Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Edward Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Without a shred of doubt, one of his fellow passengers is the murderer.

Isolated by the storm detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man’s enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again.

The novel inspired a 1974 film starring Albert Finney and Ingrid Bergman, which earned Ingrid Bergman an Academy Award and British Academy of Film and Television Arts award for Best Actress. Forty-Three years later, Kenneth Branagh’s version has been nominated for over 22 film awards.
