The Lady Vanishes

Spell binding movie from the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, The Lady Vanishes – most of the movie sequence takes place in a train leaving Germany. There is a middle aged English governess, a young lady going off home to her marriage, an up & coming English musician. The governess vanishes whilst in the train. There is a German doctor specialising in brain injuries, mysterious Italians, butlers, couple of Englishmen discussing only cricket all the time, an English couple of which the man is going to be a judge back home and rather conservative compared to his bold wife. Typical Hitchcockian drama and suspense in the movie. The late Margaret Lockwood looks good in the movie and has acted well. Hitchcock himself comes in the end as his usual manner.
