A 1938 film starring Margaret Lockwood and Creator/MichaelRedgrave, ''The Lady Vanishes'' is one of the last films directed by Creator/AlfredHitchcock before he went off to Hollywood. After receiving a nasty bump on the head, Iris (Lockwood) meets Miss Froy, a nice middle-aged lady on board a train travelling through Bandrika, a fictional country somewhere in central Europe. They get on nicely for a while, when suddenly... the lady vanishes ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin what a twist]]). Iris and the caddish-yet-loveable Gilbert (Redgrave) promptly try to locate her - but nobody seems to remember seeing Miss Froy. Did Iris just make her up? Or is there foul play at work?

* PlotBasedVoiceCancellation: Ms. Froy tries to introduce herself to the heroine but loud train noises cancel out what she is saying. This prompts Ms. Froy to write her name on the window, which turns into a ChekovsGun later when the heroine sees the writing again, proving to herself that she was not imagining their encounter.
