Over the following six decades, Finney would rack up over 50 credits on the big and small screen alike.

When the 1970s came along, Finney started taking on a wider variety of roles, including Scrooge, the musical adaptation of the classic tale A Christmas Carol, Stephen Frears' directorial debut Gumshoe, Ridley Scott's first feature The Duelists, and the star-studded adaptation of Agatha Christie's mystery Murder on the Orient Express, where he would earn another Oscar nomination for playing famed detective Hercule Poirot.
