Synopsis

After witnessing a murder at a London music hall, Richard Hannay is approached by a mysterious woman who claims she committed the crime in order to thwart foreign spies who plan to smuggle valuable military secrets out of the country. When she herself is killed, Hannay is forced to run from both the police and the secret agents. Along the way, he latches on to a cool but reluctant blonde, and together they try to figure out the meaning of the woman's last words: "the Thirty-Nine Steps."

Description

A classic British mystery, and one of Hitchcock's best. The ever-charming Donat is caught between the police and enemy agents when he brings home a mysterious woman who turns up dead in his apartment the next morning. Distinguished by its pioneering use of contrapuntal sound effects, as well as the dynamism between Donat and Carroll.

Notes

Novelist John Buchan, who played "the Baron Tweedsmuir," was Governor-General of the Dominion of Canada at the time of the film's release. Director Alfred Hitchcock's wife, writer Alma Reville, did continuity. Some laserdisc editions of the film include a 20-minute documentary on Hitchcock's British films. Filmed in Sheperd's Bush, London, England. The print used for Home Vision VHS version is from the Janus collection. Remade twice, once in 1959 with Kenneth More and Taina Elg and again in 1978 with Robert Powell and David Warner.
