Collection of three films adapted from Agatha Christie’s novels following the Belgian sleuth. In ‘Murder On the Orient Express’ (1974), while heading into heavy weather, the Orient Express gets stuck in the snow and overnight one of the passengers – the millionaire Ratchett (Richard Widmark) – is repeatedly stabbed to death. Who did it? Luckily the famous detective Hercule Poirot (Albert Finney) is on hand to find out. The cast also includes Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery and Vanessa Redgrave. In ‘Death On the Nile’ (1978) a rich heiress is murdered aboard a steamship travelling down the Nile. Poirot (Peter Ustinov) discovers that almost all the passengers had a reason to kill her but will he be able to locate the true culprit before the ship reaches port? The film also stars Bette Davis, Maggie Smith, Angela Lansbury and David Niven. Finally, in ‘Evil Under the Sun’ (1982), when beautiful socialite Arlena Marshall (Diana Rigg) is found strangled on a Mediterranean island, there is no shortage of suspects for Poirot (Ustinov) to eliminate from his enquiries.

Lord Edgware Dies finds Poirot (David Suchet) reopening his London office with the help of Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran) and Captain Hastings (Hugh Fraser). As they celebrate their reunion, Japp quips that there’s “only one thing missing…the body”. Right on cue, a corpse turns up just moments later. Most of the suspects are actors by profession, but Poirot’s “little grey cells” are able to penetrate the murderer’s disguise–though only after two more victims heighten the suspense. –Larisa Lomacky Moore
