    The Lady Vanishes (Gaumont, 1938). Insert (14" X 36").
    Adapted from the novel The Wheel Spins by Ethel Lina White, Alfred Hitchcock brilliantly directs this top thriller set aboard a train bound for England. British travelers Margaret Lockwood and Michael Redgrave unwittingly become entangled in espionage, kidnapping, and murder, after Miss Froy (Dame May Whitty) disappears. The film was a smash hit, and was one of the final movies Hitchcock made in Britain before moving to Hollywood. In the film's lighter moments we are introduced to the characters Charters and Caldicott (Nauton Wayne and Basil Radford), slightly bumbling cricket fans, who reappear in several films throughout the 1940s and 1950s. This gorgeous insert has been restored to address two corner chips, small tears in the bottom border, and fold and edge wear. There was a chip, a tape lift, and a tear in the left border. There are smudges in the center, and two creases that occurred after the restoration. We are happy to offer this format, which is especially notable for its fantastic artwork, for the first time. Fine+ on Linen.
