“Bunny Lake Is Missing”


Last night we watched the 1965 psychological thriller, “Bunny Lake is Missing“. It was directed by Otto Preminger and based on the novel by Evelyn Piper. I had heard the name before, but had never seen the film. It is a film about a brother Steven (Keir Dullea) and sister Ann (Carol Lynley) who have recently moved to London when Ann’s illegitimate daughter, Bunny Lake goes missing.

We are not sure if Bunny is real, who is crazy, or who is telling the truth. Noel Coward plays an especially creepy landlord and Marita Hunt is the eccentric retired spinster who lives in the upper flat of the school where Bunny goes missing.  Laurence Olivier plays Detective Newhouse who tries, with deductive reasoning, to figure out what is going on.

One scene where Detective Newhouse is questioning Ann in a pub The Zombies appear on the television for a few songs. A nice surprise.

Well worth a viewing. A good film on a cold night in November.
