Mrs. Hubbard mentions several times about the fact of being married twice. Lauren Bacall was really married twice (with Humphrey Bogart and Jason Robards. Coincidentally, the name Hubbard sounds a little like Robards and both were the second husband of character and also of the actress. Ironically, in 2016 it was announced that Michelle Pfeiffer was cast as Mrs. Hubbard in the Orient Express remake. Pfeiffer has also only been married twice, once to actor Peter Horton, and presently to David E. Kelley. See more »
Just after Poirot sips his liqueur (the green drink) in the dining car, a blurry white sedan can be seen zipping across the landscape in a way that cars do not move in the 30s. It appears to be a sedan from the 70s. See more »
A great ensemble cast. Superb direction. An amazing mystery. The finest of the Christie film versions. Finney is the most amazing screen Poirot since the great Charles Laughton. He's devilish as much as he is clever and cunning. Beautifully crafted and scripted, the film is one of the finest of the genre. Not to be missed.
