Introduced by Regina Scruggs, Houston Film Critics Society

The Guardian calls Alfred Hitchcock’s classic British mystery The Lady Vanishes “one of the greatest train movies.” The story follows Iris (Margaret Lockwood), who befriends fellow passengers on a trip before her wedding. When she notices that Miss Froy (Dame May Whitty) has not rejoined the travelers after the train stops to clear an avalanche, Iris and a musicologist (Michael Redgrave) search for the woman.
