This review is for the 2005 release by H.H.0 DVD "The Lady Vanishes ". The film is a gem of entertainment and wittiness, ruined by an awful awful print- lack of a well defined black and white ( whites are often blinding, and obscure the blacks), scratches all over, a constant background noise which gives the impression it's hailing outside; if you are looking forward to watching this film, get another edition, not this one.

This is one of those classic films that should be in every film fanatic's collection.

I had for some reason missed upgrading this film when I replaced all of my VHS tapes with DVDs a few years ago and only recently ordered this disc. Whilst the picture is a little bit scratchy in a few places for a second or two the overall transfer is very good, 100% better than the tape or the old 9mm print before that.
Very pleased as this is one of my wife's favourite Margaret Lockwood films.

I can't imagine there is anyone out there who hasn't seen a film of 'The Lady Vanishes', but this is the original and by far the best version. Slightly dotty English people travelling back to England on a train from what seems to be somewhere in the Balkans, when a lady vanishes. Will she be rescued before the Evil Foreigners do away with her...?! That said, the film contains several rather caustic cameos of English attitudes and hypocrisy. The film was made at a time when Britain's appeasement policy towards the Nazi's in Germany was starting to be heavily criticised in some quarters (the film is anti-appeasement). Viewing the film in that context makes it more understandable. However, please don't get the idea that this film is heavy going - it is a good old fashioned thriller in its own right!

A very dated but brilliant little Hitchcock classic, with a mystery on a train travelling across Europe, with deceit, fun and action right up to the end. An old but enjoyable film, where few are who they seem to be and the broad or often biting humour lightens a dark tale of espionage.

There have been several film and TV versions of "The Lady Vanishes" and in my opinion this is the best. It has the typical tense atmosphere associated with Alfred Hitchcock. The use of Margaret Lockwood was a masterstroke and Hitchcock uses her to great advantage,

One of Hitchcock's early films, in black and white. My mum was a fan of Margaret Lockwood, and I just wanted to see it. It's not a patch on his later films, but good to watch all the same.
