the lady vanishes
A comedy thriller adapted by Derek Webb from the novel by Ether Lina White, on which the classic Hitchcock film was based.
Iris Carr is a wealthy socialite, and we first meet her as she faints with sunstroke waiting for a train to take her back to the UK after holidaying in Eastern Europe. Once on the train, she is in a compartment with a 'honeymoon couple', an austere Baroness, a formidable looking 'Doctor', and an elderly lady with an eclectic dress sense, Miss Froy. Shortly after, Iris falls asleep and, when she wakes, is surprised to find that Miss Froy is no longer there. But, when Iris asks the others where Miss Froy has gone, she is astonished when they deny she was ever there. Unable to comprehend this, she goes in search of Miss Froy and meets up with Max Hare and his friend, a professor, also from Britain. Together they agree to help Iris find Miss Froy but soon begin to doubt her word as they are met with denial from everyone they talk to.
