Editorial Reviews

A stunning new adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1930s thriller sees a beautiful, spoiled young woman risk her life to solve the mysterious disappearance of a woman on a train. Iris Carr (Tuppence Middleton, Spies of Warsaw) is travelling across Europe by train when she unwittingly becomes embroiled in a sinister Balkan plot. Feeling disorientated after a fall, Iris is befriended by Miss Froy, an elderly English woman sharing her carriage. But when she wakes up from a short sleep, Miss Froy has vanished without a trace. As fellow passengers claim the lady never existed, Iris fights to discover what actually happened – and prove that she’s not going crazy. Or is she?

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappearance on a luxury train in post-war Croatia... November 30, 2013
The Lady Vanishes is a 2012/2013 British drama and mystery film directed by Diarmuid Lawrence and is a co-production of the BBC (first broadcast in March 2013 on BBC One) and Masterpiece Films. Based on the 1936 novel The Wheel Spins by Ethel Lina White (1876-1944), it stars Selina Cadell in the key role of the disappearing Miss Froy, Tuppence Middleton as the young Iris Carr (who discovers the disappearance, but is not taken seriously), and Tom Hughes and Alex Jennings as Max Hare and the Professor, the two fellow English passengers who come to her aid.

According to Wikipedia, the film is less a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's 1938 film of the same name than a new interpretation of the novel, one based far more closely on it. It depicts a young and beautiful English socialite, Iris Carr, travelling by train across 1930s Europe, returning to England from Croatia. She is alarmed by the mysterious disappearance of a woman, Miss Froy, also travelling on the train. She enlists the help (initially given somewhat reluctantly) of the handsome young Max Hare, and his former Oxford Professor, who are travelling together on the train.. The setting of the remake is the luxury express passenger train from Croatia to Trieste, rather than in the original fictional country. An entire 1930s luxury passenger train interior, complete with sleeping carriages, a dining car, and a passenger bar and lounge car, were all recreated in Budapest for the production of this film adaptation.

Despite the plush and intriguing setting and excellent supporting cast, the film is marred by the casting of the unknown Tuppence Middleton as the young socialite who enlists the help of her fellow train passengers to find Miss Froy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely charming! September 22, 2013
By eyduck
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Wonderful cast, beautifully performed, fantastic direction, great attention to period sets, costume, hair, and makeup. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed. If you like the feel of BBC Mysteries and Agatha Christie, this is a winner! Can hardly wait to watch it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! Perfect Sets, Costumes, Acting, Cast September 1, 2014
By Patty P
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Loved It! Frankly I am mystified by those here who turned up their noses at the lead actress. I thought she played her part, exactly as written, with great skill. The whole show carried the typical Masterpiece Mystery/ Agatha Christie feel throughout, and the actress skillfully portrayed the near hysteria of feeling truly alone and in deep trouble for the first time in her life. Her confidence is shaken and she begins to question her own sanity, but is jarred into "flight or fight" mode by the determined selfish indifference of many around her and the clearly evil intent of others who have a great deal to hide.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling period drama! March 6, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a thrilling mystery-this is it! The search for the missing lady brings up prejudice and apathy in the witnesses and the investigators. It is a well written period mystery with all necessary period drama accoutrements!

5.0 out of 5 stars 'All Aboard For Love ---Mystery ---Action' July 7, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You have to really love TRAINS ---to appreciate this movie. I personally travel frequently in Europe and Russia and in doing so ---I ride many excellent trains. This movie literally reaches-out and pulls you into the train ride as a passenger.
You actually experience all the action and suspense as if you were participating in it! *A great mystery/love story.
