I've been waiting patiently for Criterion to begin releasing the British Hitchcock productions, and hopeful many more will follow his 1938 production of The Lady Vanishes. For those unaware, there are about ten films from the Master of Suspense, produced between the silent Blackmail in 1929 and Jamaica Inn in 1939, that should be of interest to modern audiences. The Lady Vanishes comes almost at the end of this incredible run of quality films. The "Lady" in the film is Dame May Whitty. The great Michael Redgrave holds the film together, while the comedy duo of Naunton Wayne and Basil Radford brings up the lighter moments. Like other classics of importance, the less on knows viewing this film, the better. Suffice to say that the time given over to its pleasures will be fully rewarded. As to the Blu-ray itself, it comes from quality pre-print, with a full and lush grayscale. Audio is uncompressed monaural. Great British Hitchcock. Very Highly Recommended.
