Most of The Lady Vanishes takes place on a train and it got me wondering – what is it with trains in movies?
Alfred Hitchcock, we know, had a thing for trains. I suppose that is to be expected given that he comes from Europe, where people actually ride trains. He was so enamored with trains, he even made Strangers on a Train. We won’t even talk about the train going into the tunnel at the end of North by Northwest.
Except I just did.
