THE 39 STEPS [1935] movie review

December 31, 2011 · Print This Article

Unfortunately, I did not write a review for THE 39 STEPS immediately after watching it for some reason, so now months later I am having to recall my thoughts on the movie.  It is an early Hitchcock film, not really anything like his more famous work.  An American traveling in England gets caught up in an international spy network and is accused of murder.  He spends much of the movie on the run handcuffed, fortunately, to a beautiful blonde woman.

I remember his speaking is very quick and articulate.  They often have to hide in quaint looking hotels and pretend to be a married couple.


Got something to say?
