Spotlighting a Movie Classic -

Two of my alltime favorite characters from the Movies are a pair of Englishmen appearing in The Lady Vanishes from Alfred Hitchcock. I was delighted to discover today that someone else appreciates them, too.

Matthew Sweet writes about Charters and Caldicott:

"the film was being colonised
by two minor characters. Two
Englishmen with a cricket fixation."

A wonderful essay, especially for leisurely weekend perusal. If you like The Lady Vanishes, and I certainly do, you can't go wrong with this piece.
