|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about The Lady Vanishes (1938)|
|Alfred Hitchcock directed THE LADY VANISHES in 1938 in England.
The passengers of a trans-european train are stopped for the night in a small village of central Europe because of bad weather condition. In the morning, Margaret Lockwood socializes with Dame May Whitty - Miss Froy - as the train leaves the village, heading to western Europe. Soon, Miss Froy disappears from the train and nobody, except Margaret Lockwood, seems to remember the old lady. With the help of Michael Redgrave, the young english woman tries to understand what's going on on this train.
Great Hitchcock. Basic stuff.
