Capital Celluloid 2017 - Day 344: Wed Dec 13

The Lady Vanishes (Hitchcock, 1938): Cinema Museum, 7.30pm

Chicago Reader review:
Alfred Hitchcock's masterful 1938 spy thriller, with Margaret Lockwood and Michael Redgrave searching for kidnapped agent Dame May Whitty aboard a trans-European express train, pursued all the while by sinister Nazi agents. This is vintage Hitchcock, with the pacing and superb editing that marked not only his 30s style but eventually every film that had any aspirations whatever to achieving suspense and rhythm. 
Don Druker

Here (and above) is the trailer.
