REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., Aug. 16, 2000

This British Hitchcock picture is one of the master’s best. An old woman’s disappearance on a train kicks off an intricate murder mystery. According to critic Pauline Kael, “it is directed with such skill and velocity that it has come to represent the quintessence of screen suspense.”
