Movie Info

The Lady Vanishes packs in the suspense and style when Iris Carr, a beautiful young socialite traveling alone, befriends a kindly English middle-aged woman but wakes from a catnap to find her missing - and all the strangers surrounding her denying that the woman was ever there at all! This closed-door mystery classic investigates the question of madness and isolation set among increasingly sinister passengers and a train barreling through Europe toward a dangerous and dizzying final destination: the truth. -- (C) PBS

Critic Reviews for The Lady Vanishes

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

It forgoes the crackling pace, light touch and surprisingly sophisticated sexual banter of the original, opting for melancholy, ominousness and sentimentality.

The result is entertaining without either dethroning Hitchcock's 1938 film or embarrassing itself.

Audience Reviews for The Lady Vanishes

Good, suspenseful drama. Particularly worth mentioning is the idea of the passengers treating Iris like a hysterical woman and how her role as the protagonist shines with a feminist light.
