    ''Play it again, Miss Froy!''

    I saw this movie when I was a child in the late '60's. The excitement of the chase stayed with me my entire life. Good movie! The train whistle still startles me! My children sit through the entire movie for fear of missing something. I think they love this one because Hitchcock smears this one with humor they can grasp. We love it. You will too!

    Vanishing Suspense

    Not the best of Hitchcock's efforts, this one still satisfies. If the movie suffers, it's because the sustained suspense that one expects from Hitchcock goes on holiday at times to service the budding romance between the lead actors. Sure, there are a few sparks there, but there's also more than the film's share of the annoying female hysteria you find in many early romantic comedies. Nonetheless, the pair of will-be lovers do share some chemistry, and when you add memorable supporting characters, and an at least serviceable plot, this movie is (when the tracks are clear) full steam ahead.

    5 Stars To The Lady Vanishes

    This early Hitchcock mystery is a wonderful, engaging film set on a European train in the 1930's. Truly one of Hitchcock's thoughtful, showpiece pictures, it combines the director's legendary aura of mystery and intrigue with a mostly English ensemble cast that, it seems, are always eager to play their part in doing justice to this film. Margaret Lockwood is the protagonist Iris, a young women coming back to England after a vacation with friends. While waiting overnight in a hotel in central Europe for her train the next morning, she meets an older woman, also waiting for the train. Hitchcock also uses the hotel as a means for introducing many of the other characters, some of who will be bound on the train. But the next day something subversive and mysterious is going on throughout the train ride, and Iris, along with delightful actor Michael Redgrave by her side, is bound to find out if the Lady really has Vanished.
