    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! 5 years 7 months ago

    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! 6 years 2 months ago

    My 15th Hitchcock film and definitely in the middle range. Started out pretty good and interesting, liked the plot and the idea but the second half turned out to be rather dull and the last 30 minutes were really disappointing.

    It was actually more of a comedy than a thriller, Hitch should have tried out a real comedy, I'm sure he would have nailed it.

    I liked the two leading actors, they had good chemistry and I enjoyed their performance.
