B/W 97 minutes

Plot: spy thriller where Margaret Lockwood's character wakens on a train to find her elderly companion missing, and everyone denying she even existed. Is she a pathological liar? Hallucinating? Or beneath civility and ordinariness does there hide dark mystery?

A good mix of unsettling suspense, comedy (two of the minor characters Charters and Caldicott appeared in other films,) and drama.
