Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 10/01/2003
"Ingeniously scripted by Launder and Gilliat....[The film] makes very inventive use of the confined space..."

"[A] thrilling riddle of a film set within the gathering storm of war." -- Grade: A-
Empire - 02/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "Hitchcock's penultimate British movie....Every character turns out to be different from how they first appear."

Plot Synopsis:

When a young woman on a train meets a charming old lady who promptly disappears, the other passengers deny having seen her, leading the young woman to suspect conspiracy. Hitchcock's final low-budget U.K. production before leaving for Hollywood stands as an extremely deft cocktail of comedy, romance, and suspense.
