    Description:

    The master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, weaves a knotty yarn of intrigue in this early outing. Aboard a transcontinental train, a young woman named Iris Henderson meets an elderly governess, Miss Froy, en route to her home. Their conversation is polite, uneventful. Then Iris is hit on the head, and Froy disappears! Iris comes to and queries the crew and other passengers about Froy's whereabouts; shockingly, no one recalls seeing the governess. Iris asks a skeptical traveler, Gilbert, to help her find Froy. He agrees to assist Iris. As the search begins to seem futile, Iris starts to suspect she is losing her mind... Then several people on the train--including a shifty physician and a mysterious nun--reveal nefarious motives beneath their innocent facades.

    The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, weaves a knotty yarn of intrigue and romance in this early outing. Young, beautiful, and spoiled Iris Henderson (Margaret Lockwood) is wrapping up a ski vacation before unenthusiastically returning to London to be married. In the hotel, she meets an elderly governess en route to home, Miss Froy (Dame May Witty), as well as an unbearably rude music scholar named Gilbert (Michael Redgrave). Then, just before boarding the train, Iris receives a blow to the head and is taken under the protective wing of Miss Froy. Their conversation is polite and uneventful. Iris finally dozes off and when she comes to, Miss Froy is nowhere to be found, and no one on the train recalls seeing the governess. Thwarted at every turn in her search, Iris finds only one ally, the unbearable but handsome Gilbert. As their search begins to seem futile, Iris starts to suspect she is losing her mind. Then several people on the train--including a shifty physician and a mysterious nun--reveal nefarious motives beneath their innocent facades.

    Theatrical release: August 1938.

    Hitch onscreen: Hitchcock appears as a pedestrian with a cigar.

    The set was one 90-foot-long coach, with other cars made by transparancies or miniatures.

    Voted One of the Ten Best Films of the Year by The New York Times.

    Voted One of the Best Films of All Time by the SIGHT & SOUND Critics Poll: Paul Zimmerman (1972), Philip French (1992).

    While shooting, Hitchcock got a cable from David O. Selznick asking him to come to Hollywood to direct a picture about the sinking of the Titanic.

    When a young woman on a train meets a charming old lady who promptly disappears, the other passengers deny having seen her, leading the young woman to suspect conspiracy. Hitchcock's final low-budget U.K. production before leaving for Hollywood stands as an extremely deft cocktail of comedy, romance, and suspense.

    "Ingeniously scripted by Launder and Gilliat....[The film] makes very inventive use of the confined space..."
