  • Alfred Hitchcock's appearance

    In your Cast, you indicated that Hitchcock was smoking a cigarette in the London RR statin. This is wrong. He was the cab driver. The movie is outstanding in terms of actors, especially Wayne and Radford.

  • a glimpse of Europe long gone

    As Dame Mae Whitty says at the start, "there are some forgotten corners of Europe" and we see just that, in a backwater Alpen village where a train is stranded. This is a good movie, with a brisk pace and lots of dry wit at the beginning.The tiny trains and plaster of Paris mountains are kind of cute as "sets". I know they're not meant to be, but come on now Mr. Hitchcock. The British cricketeers add chuckles. I didn't understand why there was random killing done or attempted in the first half-hour. What had these people to do with Whitty's character? What threat were they? Huh? Anyhow, by the time everyone went into clash-mode near the end, I was cheering for Michael Redmond and sitting on the edge of my seat. Never did see Hitch.

    A delightful suspense-comedy from Hitchcock. Lockwood & Redgrave look for Whitty after she seemingly dissapears on a train ride, great comic relife from Radford & Wayne. The wait to establish the actual dissaperance is worth it, filled with Hitchcock's usual mastery of mystery, with a hint of predicatble romance. The fantastic final great film from Hitchcock before coming to America to make "Rebecca." I give it a 4.5/5.

  • Signor Doppo is certifiably pazzo

    • Jeff Boston
    • 1/28/13

    Interesting story of the tension building between 3 nations the year before WW2 broke out in Europe, with the 3 main protagonists British and the 3 main antagonists obviously German and Italian. This movie is still understandably well regarded 3 generations after it was a hit with critics and audiences, but it no longer holds the same interest (it's been copiously copied). The Master of Suspense's later "North By Northwest" holds up 3 times as well, and "The Lady Vanishes" has but 39% the punch of Hitch's earlier British production "The 39 Steps".

    *****

  • ONE OF THE BEST

    The '38 version of this movie is one of my top ten favourites. How could it fail, with Agatha Christie writing the original book and Alfred Hitchcock directing the movie. The old production tricks are a hoot to watch. Don't forget to look for Hitchcock in the movie.
