The Lady Vanishes (#35)

To cap off another group of 20 movies, Brendan and Jason discuss Alfred Hitchcock’s suspense-filled The Lady Vanishes. How well does the movie age? Is it odd that the first 20-30 minutes are essentially a screwball comedy? Is this one of the oldest movies to pass the Bechtel Test? Plus – Jason makes a stand for “up-front credits,” the guys discuss the characters of Charters & Caldicott along with their storied film career and much more.

Next week: it’s time to rank the previous 20 movies and give out some handy-dandy awards!
