This is huge.

A truly great film. This channel keeps getting better.

Good man, just got back out of bed to set it to record.

Just noticed that Film4 are showing Nuns on the Run on Tuesday night.  I think it's been a long time since this has popped up on any channel.

There's a reason for that.

The Lady Vanishes (1938) is on iPlayer too, or at least it was last week when I watched it.  Similarly to Rear Window, it took a bit of time to get going, but when it does it's full-on mystery and intrigue.  It was also surprisingly funny too, especially the fight scene with Margaret Lockwood hopping around and cheering Michael Redgrave on.  I gave the 1979 version a watch the day after, and although not a carbon copy, it's tough to not compare it to the original.  Angela Lansbury was great in it though and I enjoyed Arthur Lowe as one of the Cricket obsessed old-English boys.

Charters and Caldicott from the original were so popular that they ended up crossing over into several other films, most notably Night Train to Munich, which is fantastic. They're also in one of the Dead of Night stories although they're under a different name.
