* 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.

All right, there ''is'' foul play. But there's also a ScrewballComedy relationship between Iris and Gilbert. And two hilariously over-the-top Englishmen. This is probably one of Hitchcock's nicer films - think ''Literature/TheThirtyNineSteps''.

The film was remade in 1979, with Creator/AngelaLansbury in the title role, and a TV movie version aired on the BBC in 2013. Unofficially, the Creator/JodieFoster film ''Film/{{Flightplan}}'' bears quite a few similarities.



* GenreShift: The 2013 BBC adaptation is a serious psychological thriller. That is not to say that the original 1938 film did not have a serious thriller plot, but it also contained a screwball comedy subplot and much more humor in general. In the original, the foreignness of many of the characters is played for comedy, while in the remake it is used to heighten Iris's sense of isolation and fear.



* ImpairmentShot:
** Iris on the train, after a flower pot has been pushed off a windowsill and hit her on the head.
** The 2013 BBC version uses this as a drugged Iris is being taken off the train.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Gilbert rather rudely sidelines Iris's legitimate concerns about his constant noisemaking upstairs and freaks her out by passive-aggressively move into her hotel space, but when he sees her raving about Froy's disappearance, he's genuinely concerned and sets out to help her.
