The Lady Vanishes | 1979 | Cybill Shepherd, Elliott Gould

A watchable remake of the much-love Hitchcock classic. Miss Froy (Angela Lansbury in high camp mode) goes missing on a train leaving hapless Elliott Gould and Cybill Shepherd flitting from one compartment to the next, where thet are ruthlessly upstaged by loveable old coves Arthur Lowe and Ian Carmichael as cricket-mad Charters and Caldicott.
