Detective Classic - The Thirty Nine Steps review by JD

Spoiler Alert
21/01/2010

Although there are moments of great suspense I would not class this as a thriller; More a period drama or detective drama. Set in 1914 there are plenty of references to the build up of the great war but the interest is centred on Robert Powell's character which is brilliantly played. A right ripping yarn.
