Bunny Lake Is Missing is a 1965 British psychological thriller film starring Laurence Olivier and directed and produced by Otto Preminger, who filmed it in black and white widescreen format in London. After American single mother Ann Lake (Carol Lynley) arrives in London from New York, her child Bunny mysteriously disappears from her first day at the kindergarten Little People's Garden. Ann and her brother Steve (Keir Dullea) search the kindergarten and find an eccentric woman who lives upstairs who is compiling a recorded collection of little children's darker fantasies, what she calls "little nightmares". In desperation, they call the police, and Superintendent Newhouse (Laurence Olivier) arrives on the scene. When they go to Ann's home they find that all of Bunny's possessions have been removed from the house.
