Alfred Hitchcock, 1938.
Iris wakes from a nap to find her friend Miss Froy has disappeared. No one seems to remember seeing Froy. While this idea is potentially eerie, we see many of the characters admitting to one another that they'd seen the woman but wish to avoid trouble and so remain silent, thus voiding any possible tension over Iris's sanity. This is an unfortunate choice that has been remedied in remakes such as the failed Jodi Foster vehicle "Flight Plan" or Hitchcock's own "Into Thin Air" . While I recently enjoyed "The 39 Steps" and "Shadow Of A Doubt", this film had little to recommend itself. Other features include silly plotting, an abundance of medium range head-and-shoulders shots and a hackneyed ending. I did enjoy the model towns and watching the scenery pass by through the train windows.
