The 1965 film is the subject of this essay. Bunny Lake Is Missing is the name of the 1957 novel about Bunny Lake (novel).
British-American psychological drama Bunny Lake is missing was directed and produced by Otto Preminger in 1965. Based on Merriam Modell’s 1957 novel Bunny Lake Is Missing, the film was shot in the black-and-white widescreen format in London. As a mother seeking her missing daughter, Keir Dullea portrays her brother, and Laurence Olivier plays a police investigator looking into the matter. The opening tune, composed by Paul Glass, is frequently heard as a refrain. In a televised broadcast of the film, the rock band Zombies appear.
Bunny Lake Is Missing was first panned by critics and undersold by Preminger himself, but its technical merits have subsequently been re-evaluated.

Bunny Lake Is Missing Drama
When Ann Lake (Carol Lynley, The Poseidon Adventure) arrives to pick up four-year-old Bunny at her new preschool in London, she’s told that no child by that name is enrolled there! Superintendent Newhouse (Lawrence Olivier, Hamlet, Academy Award® Best Actor of 1948, The Boys From Brazil) of Scotland Yard is assigned to the case. His suspects include Steven Lake (Keir Dullea, 2001: A Space Odyssey), the child’s protective uncle; Horatio Wilson (Noel Coward, The Italian Job, 1969), the Lake’s decadent landlord; and Aida Ford (Martita Hunt, Anastasia), the school’s eccentric ex-headmistress, but he soon learns that no one has actually seen the child and there is absolutely no proof that Bunny ever existed! Ann swears the child’s been taken, but Newhouse begins to wonder that the distraught young woman may just be nuts.
The Ending of Bunny Lake Has Not Been Explained.
The family of Ann, a single mother, and her daughter Bunny recently relocated to England. In order to make a last-minute appointment at home, she handed her daughter over to the school’s cook. No one knows where Bunny is, and the cook has vanished after picking her up from school on her first day. Bunny’s disappearance is being investigated by the police, but they can’t find any of her belongings, photographs, passport, or anything else. For the sake of making things even more suspicious, the landlord sulks all over the place. Ann had an imaginary companion named Bunny when she was a child, Stephen tells the police inspector. Police begin to question whether Bunny is really genuine and begin to suspect Ann of being a crazy person who has fabricated the girl. As soon as Stephen arrives and finds Bunny’s doll in the repair shop, he burns it in front of Ann’s surprise and then knocks her out. Stephen tells the doctor how Ann has fixed Bunny in the hospital. As we watch Stephen set fire to Bunny’s belongings in the flat’s fireplace, we observe Ann sneak out of the hospital. Angry by his sister’s intrusion into his relationship with Bunny, Stephen grabs a real Bunny from the backseat of his car. As Stevie (Stephen’s alter ego?) approaches, Ann confronts him. Her next suggestion is a game of hide-and-seek because she’s fed up with the “Bunny chat” they’ve been playing. Suddenly, the cops arrive and arrest Stephen while they are all playing. The inspectors tell the mother and daughter to rest easy now that they know about you [Bunny].
