Excellent! The balance of mystery and humour are pitch perfect and never throw each other off course. Consistently gripping and enjoyable from the master of suspense. The pre-war British reserve and patriotism in the film may seem dated but its both endearing and humourous, and only enhanced my enjoyment. The film has aged but like a fine wine it has only got better!
Another excellent Hitchcock movie. The Lady Vanishes is a fast-paced film with a great mix of comedy, suspense, mystery and romance. I really enjoyed this!
Wonderfull film! one of my favorites by Hitchcock
Just one question however: What happens to the soldier who returns to his senses and finds a gun after being kicked in the head. He has the brits and the girls at gunpoint yet the situation is never resolved.
