In this Hitchcock puzzler, Iris searches the train for that nice Miss Froy she’d befriended over tea. But nobody aboard remembers her. And that creepy doctor won’t leave Iris alone. Only teasing playboy Gilbert is willing to help her find Miss Froy. This movie is shown at noon, 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. in the Beecher Room of the Auburn Library, 350 Nevada St. in Auburn. Presented by the Library, the movie is free. For information, call 530-878-7938 or visit auburnsilverscreen.com.
Starring Sir Michael Redgrave, Margaret Lockwood and Dame May Whitty as the elusive Miss Froy, this mystery involves a variety of strange people in disguise. Most people we meet on this train are not who they appear to be. The nun wears high heels. The doctor is a spy. The two men who express serious concern over how England will survive are actually rabid soccer fans.
We are on Iris’ side, because we know she really did have a conversation with Miss Froy. We don’t know if we trust that playboy, but he’s so funny! Much nicer than that grim doctor who seems convinced that Iris is insane.
The next Silver Screen presentation, “The Third Man,” is on Saturday, Nov. 2.
