Goodwin went out on a limb and made the lavish, star-laden 'Murder on the Orient Express' from the novel by Agatha Christie. It was directed by Sidney Lumet, a choice as unexpected as Albert Finney as Hercule Poirot, but both choices paid off handsomely: the movie was a big success around the world, and Finney was, and remains, the best Poirot to date (David Suchet is a millimeter behind him).

He played him again for producers John Brabourne and Richard B. Goodwin in 'Evil Under the Sun' (1982), which, like 'Murder on the Orient Express' (with Albert Finney as the Belgian detective) and 'Death on the Nile,' was set in the 1930s. Ustinov then turned up in a trio of TV movies with contemporary settings, 'Thirteen at Dinner' (1985), 'Dead Man's Folly' and 'Murder in Three Acts' (both 1986); he played Poirot for the last time in the dismal 'Appointment with Death' (1988), which returned to the period setting.

Their two-disc Platinum Series release of 1995’s ‘Seven’ comes with so many extras that diligent viewers may start to feel that they’ve personally worked on the movie before they’re finished.
