The Lady Vanishes / Леди исчезает (1938), Crook’s Tour (1941) 2 x DVD9 Criterion Collection
Returning to England from a vacation in Bandrika, Iris Henderson (Margaret Lockwood) befriends a charming old governess, Miss Froy (Dame May Whitty). After a nap, Iris finds that Miss Froy has disappeared. The Italians and Bandrikans sharing their train compartment claim that she never existed. Czech neurologist Dr. Hartz (Paul Lukas) suggests that Iris is hallucinating. Other travelers including English cricket fans Caldicott and Charters (Naunton Wayne & Basil Radford) have ulterior motives for denying that they saw the old governess. Music student Gilbert Redman (Michael Redgrave) indulges Iris' stubborn assertions until clues indicate that she's telling the truth.
Iris begins investigating. She is drawn into a complex web of mystery and high adventure.
