Good Alfred Hitchcock comedic-thriller. I admit I didn't like this as much as I did the first time I saw it. Much of this has to do with the diminishing return of experiencing a story the second time around...where nothing is new, and you're left with a more discerning eye that can't help but look at the story from a greater distance than before...and also peek too closely behind the magic curtain that makes it all work. Not every film needs to appreciated in multiple viewings. That said, I still like THE LADY VANISHES, and appreciate how Hitchcock blended comedy and whimsy with a more serious, and violent tone by the end.
Criterion Blu-ray disc looked good, though not extraordinary. However, it did look better than the earlier print I saw.
