This two-disc package is the second time Lady has been issued by Criterion, and features a (visually and aurally) improved transfer of the film. It retains a commentary from the earlier release, but adds tasty extras: a half-hour documentary from Leonard Leff (standard stuff, but a nice intro to Hitchcockian ideas), plus a 10-minute audio excerpt from Francois Truffaut's legendary book-length interview with Hitch. This is not only a good way to hear Hitchcock on The Lady Vanishes, it's a fascinating ringside seat at an important moment in film history. And then there's Crook's Tour, a fun 1941 feature comedy vehicle for Charters and Caldicott, the two characters played by Radford and Wayne (they'd been such a hit in The Lady Vanishes that audiences demanded more of them, leading to a long-term teaming in film and radio). All good--but Lady itself is the ride you'll be returning to again and again. --Robert Horton
This is one of Hitchcock's best films.
THE LADY VANISHES is one of Hitchcock's most thoroughly delightful films combining equal parts cheerful romance, comic wit, and thrilling suspense.
I can never make up my mind which of his films is the best and most perfect; I guess that's just impossible to say.
This film is a bit dated but the acting is still very strong and an excellent plot. You won't be disappointed.Published 25 days ago by BG
What a great story, what a great movie! I think it's still so credible today, nearly 80 years after it was filmed.Published 25 days ago by Nofyfb Azo
What a fun movie. Of course you know what happened to the poor old lady but a lot of laughs and a little suspense.Published 1 month ago by valerie neu
I LOVE this movie. This is by far one of my favorite Hitchcock films. Michael Redgrave is annoyingly charming as Gilbert, while Margret Lockwood, as Iris Henderson, has that style,... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Renee
Quality (if low budget) Hitchcock film, good acting, good story and nice ending, what's not to like ;)Published 1 month ago by Ruben Guardiola
One of Hitchcock's earliest masterworks. A snowy village inn to kick it off (and one scene with many pairs of women's legs to give an added kick) and a train to seal the deal. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Freeman Gilbert
Why does THE LADY VANISHES stand up so well, nearly eighty years after
its first release? By rights, it shouldn't do so; filmed almost
entirely in Islington Studios, with... Read more
Just standard British patriotic fare. Just because Hitch directed it doesn't mean it automatically rates 5 stars. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Talentseer
