The Lady Vanishes (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on December 13, 2011

Although I’m very fond of The 39 Steps and Young and Innocent, this is my favorite among Hitchcock’s British films.  It’s so marvelously constructed, with every piece falling into place perfectly.  Great wit and wonderful performances, with fantastic chemistry between Redgrave and Lockwood, and a charming turn by Whitty.  No matter how many times I see it, I always get wrapped up in the twists and turns of the plot, feeling Lockwood’s frustrations as she gets thwarted by the other passengers’ agendas.  Trains make such terrific locations for thrillers (for example, all the good parts of Source Code).  A fun, gripping ride.  Rating: Great
