We'll Always Have the Orient Express!
23 September 2017 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Cheryl Ladd and Stuart Wilson played an American student and a British man who meet aboard a train ten years prior and have a romance. They're romance ends abruptly. Viewers learn the history through flashbacks. Ruby Wax has a supporting role as Susan Lawson, an American photographer from New York City, traveling with Lily Parker (Cheryl Ladd) from Venice, Italy to Paris, France aboard the Orient Express. Stuart Wilson played Alex Woodward, a British suitor who falls in love with Lily Parker. The love story could have been better told though. The scenery was lovely especially Paris and Venice. Sir John Gielgud played Alex's father in a few scenes. This film was probably a made for television movie in the mid-eighties. Cheryl Ladd and Stuart Wilson were fine and believable. I actually wanted to see Ruby Wax in the film and she does a fine job.
