[R]epresents Hitchcock's work at its most charming.... [T]he suspense is tonic rather than truly frightening, and almost comically glamorous.
August 11, 2005
Une intrigue astucieuse qui continue de faire des petits encore aujourd'hui
| Original Score: 4/5

One of Hitchcock's last British movies before moving to the U.S., The Lady Vanishes is also one of his finest thrillers, already containing all the familiar ingredients of humor, mystery, witty dialogue, and great acting, especially by Dame May Whitty.

This is one of Hitchcock's finest British films, a classic mystery that manages to combine humor with a genuine sense of menace -- not to mention the kinds of characters that everyone dreams of meeting on a Central European train journey.

While Hitchcock went on to make even better films, this one sets a standard of pure entertainment that has only occasionally been matched in succeeding decades.
