When an elderly lady disappears from a train, everyone aboard denies that she ever existed...except Iris, who must save her new friend and prove that she's the victim of conspiracy, not delusion.

In Alfred Hitchcock's most quick-witted and devilish comic thriller, the beautiful Iris Henderson (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. [The Criterion Collection]
