Accommodation problems were rife while location filming in Egypt. No hotel reservations were made for some of the crew, some of whom had to be shuffled from one hotel to another, sometimes every day. See more »
On the first night of the cruise, Bette Davis's character says good night to Poirot, and he answers "Bonjour". No Belgian, especially one as fastidious and serious as Poirot, who does not play around or joke, would say "Bonjour" for "good night". He would have said "Bon soir," (good night), which he does say to the others as they go. See more »
This film has to be one of my all-time favourites! I must have seen it at least 100 times and I always enjoy it as much every time. One of the greatest casts EVER, music is stunning (NINO ROTA) and the scenery is breathtaking. SEE IT. There haven't been many films like this and there certainly haven't been any to match it since when it comes to this particular genre. Surprised it hasn't been released on DVD yet.. oh well.
