After reading all the positive posts in this thread, I turned on The Criterion Channel, reclined back in my theater chair, and viewed THE LADY VANISHES for the very first time.
Ron,

I'm curious after reading this - how does a streaming source like Criterion Channel look on a large screen like you have (I'm assuming you are talking about your projection screen)?

If you liked Lady Vanishes, take a peek at Night Train To Munich, also from Criterion. It’s not a Hitchcock film and not technically a sequel, but Caldicott and Charters appear and it has another good tense plot.
I didn't see this post when you posted it, but as soon as I viewed my Criterion BD again of "The Lady Vanishes" to check to see if it became defective, I thought about "Night Train To Munich" when I saw Caldicott and Charters again. I forgot that Basil Radford and Wayne Naunton appeared in both films. Also, I enjoyed hearing "Colonel Bogey March"/"Bridge on the River Kwai" again in "The Lady Vanishes" along with Sir Alfred Hitchcock's cameo at the train station near the end of the film.

I'm actually watching this film twice as I'm making this post with the audio commentary playing in the background.

By the way, it's a shame Margaret Lockwood didn't do more Hollywood movies. I suspect she didn't want to leave England.
