Kindly old lady, Miss Froy (Witty) seemingly disappears from a fast-moving train bound for England. But when her young friend Iris (Lockwood) investigates, she finds no one appears to believe her and she has a spiraling mystery to solve. Of course, Irish has music scholar Gilbert (Redgrave) eager to help her out. Hitchcock's first real winner, a smarmy, wit-drenched British mystery that precipitated his move to Hollywood. Along with "39 Steps," considered an early Hitchcock classic. From the novel "The Wheel Spins," by Ethel Lina White. Remade in 1979.
