Heads up! Don’t forget PBS Masterpiece Theatre Classic airs The Lady Vanishes @ 9PM ET, Sunday August 18.
Or, if you miss it, you can view it for a limited time right on the PBS website.
Truth be told, I don’t expect this film version of the original novel The Wheel Spins, by Ethel Lina White to hold a candle to Alfred Hitchcock’s 1938 version, which stars Margaret Lockwood and Michael Redgrave. (“Personally, I think you’re a bit of a stinker, too…” gets me every time!) But I think I will just have fun watching and comparing, anyway.
There is also another version of the story made in 1979 which I have never seen, but appears to deviate quite a lot from the original story.
