In the Italian version of the movie, when making his offer to hire Poirot, Mr. Ratchett says: "Italians, third world!". The term "Third world" was created during the Cold War by Alfred Sauvy in an article published in the French magazine L'Observateur on 1952 referring to unaligned countries with either Soviet bloc or the NATO bloc.. long time after 1934 when the movie takes place.

Sidney Lumet directed this Agatha Christie classic back in 1974. Albert Finney played Poirot and he was delicious and got an Oscar nomination for it. The rest of the cast was a cohesive group of heavyweights from Ingrid Bergman to Vanessa Redgrave, from Sean Connery to John Gielgud it also had a period reconstruction in scrumptious detail, wit, elegance and an infectious score. None of it is present in this new incarnation. None of it. No, the new version reeks of thoughtlessness and CGI. The actors seem to have been invited, not to play characters, but to watch Kenneth Brannagh act.
