Famed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is travelling on the Orient Express in the winter when the train is snowed in. A man is murdered in his berth, throwing all the widely-varying passengers under suspicion. During the investigation it comes to light that the dead man was a criminal himself, responsible for the death of a little girl, and that fewer and fewer people on the train appear to be above suspicion at all.
Continuity mistake: When Poirot and Mr. Ratchett first meet in the restaurant car, Poirot has to correct Ratchett's pronunciation of his name. Poirot then points with his right hand toward Ratchett, but when it cuts to a close-up of Poirot, both his hands are on the table. The angle changes back, and Poirot's hand is once again lifted.Twotall
Mrs. Hubbard: Don't you agree the man must have entered my compartment to gain access to Mr. Ratchett?
Princess Dragomiroff: I can think of no other reason, madame.
