Synopsis:
An innocent man on the run. A beautiful icy blonde. A fast-moving cross-country pursuit. A chaotic world where no one is ever what they seem. 'The 39 Steps' set the template for Hitchcock's classic suspense thrillers. John Buchan's very loosely adapted story begins when Richard Hannay picks up the exotic 'Annabella Smith' at a music hall. The next morning he discovers she's been killed and finds himself in the frame for her murder.
Way ahead of its time in terms of its pace, black comedy and the sexual chemistry between the charismatic leads (particularly when Carroll removes her stockings while handcuffed to Donat), 'The 39 Steps' is among Hitch's finest and has been voted into the BFI's Top Five Favorite British Films.

My Favourite Hitchcock. - 39 Steps review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
22/06/2012

One of the first comedy thrillers, may well be the best. Great screwball romance between Donat and Carroll, brilliant set pieces as on the Forth Bridge, indelible support characterisations like Ashcroft and Laurie. And my favourite Hitchcock reveal; when the leader of the spies shows Hannay his missing finger.
