This film is extremely well rendered by the Criterion Collection for modern viewers on DVD. The black and white footage is fairly crisp and clean when you consider the period of 1938. The story itself will appeal to fans of Alfred Hitchcock and maybe other audience as well. If you like drama, suspense and clever characters, all peppered with some comical dialogue, you may just like The Lady Vanishes. If you watch classic British films at all, you may also enjoy Crook's Tour, a delightful bonus feature on the second disc. Very fun stuff!
