The Lady Vanishes

Personally, I think we finally start hitting our stride on this one.

In this weeks Lost in Criterion we discuss Alfred Hitchcock's 1938 comedic mystery The Lady Vanishes and we surprise ourselves with just how long we can discuss a movie that is not nearly as heavy as the first two we watched. We also write off everything Hitchcock did prior to this, which I'd like to apologize for. While his pre-1940's British period is not fillled with as many classics as the rest of his career, the movies prior to The Lady Vanishes (which include the classics The 39 Steps and the original The Man Who Knew Too Much) are nothing to shake a stick at, no matter how large the stick may be.
