Hercule Poirot, now in modern times, investigates the famous crime on the famed train with a modern twist.
Carl Schenkel's last film.
Someone is playing with my mind, with my little gray cells.
In the next exterior shot after departure from Istanbul, a differently colored diesel locomotive is on the train. During the night scenes before the journey is interrupted, a steam locomotive is shown. Then when the train stops at the rockfall, the same EWS diesel is back on it, but now it's facing the other way (the EWS letters and the locomotive number 47744 have swapped places as seen from the same side of the train). Finally, when the journey resumes the next night, the steam locomotive is back.
