The Lady Vanishes
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock • 1938 • United Kingdom
Starring Margaret Lockwood, Michael Redgrave, Paul Lukas
In Alfred Hitchcock’s most quick-witted and devilish comic thriller, the beautiful Margaret Lockwood, traveling across Europe by train, meets a charming spinster (Dame May Whitty), who then seems to disappear into thin air. The younger woman turns investigator and finds herself drawn into a complex web of mystery and high adventure. Also starring Michael Redgrave, THE LADY VANISHES remains one of the great filmmaker’s purest delights.
