#9 – The Clue Vanishes
It is what the songbird
does not want him to find…
Inspiration for Photo #9 – The Lady Vanishes (1938) – Hitchcock likes trains…
This is another of my favorite Hitchcock movies. How can a person vanish in a confined space, much less one that’s moving?
In this story Iris (on the right) befriends Miss Froy (on the left). When Iris gets knocked unconscious (by a flower pot), she wakes to find that Miss Froy has disappeared. As Iris tries to convince everyone on the train that the old woman is real, all clues to her existence (such as her name written on the window) – disappear.
Behind the Scenes:
Director/photographer – Lisa Stock
Cast – Josh Henry
WE GOT A TRAIN!!! We got a REAL vintage train to shoot in!! This is a 1926 Pullman, rebuilt in 1948 with Art Deco details. How beautiful is this dining car? Many thanks to the Southeastern Railway Museum for accommodating us. The museum is fascinating with over 90 cars of rolling stock. A wonderful history lesson.
BONUS: This one has a VIDEO that helps tell our story.
