Elegant, escapist entertainment at its stylishly European best, this Agatha Christie whodunit, set in the 1930s, boasts an incredible international cast of some of the most wonderfully eccentric characters ever created. Lauren Bacall, Sean Connery, Jacqueline Bisset, John Gielgud, Vanessa Redgrave, Anthony Perkins, Martin Balsam, Richard Widmark, and Michael York are all part of this star-studded ensemble. Ingrid Bergman won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar® for her role as the slightly dim-witted, Bible-quoting Swedish missionary. And best of all, Albert Finney is the dapper Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, for whom solving murders is a precise intellectual exercise. The super-sleuth agrees to interview all aboard the famous luxury train, hoping to find the killer of an American millionaire before the local police arrive. Visually sumptuous and packed with sparkling dialogue, this incomparable thriller received six Academy Award® nominations including Best Actor, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, and Costume Design. Come join us under the stars to celebrate the 40th anniversary of MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS.
