Movie Summary

1935
Rating:
Not Available
One of Alfred Hitchcock's earliest "man on the run pictures," The 39 Steps is also one of the most acclaimed British films of all time. Starring Robert Donat as Richard Hannay and Madeleine Carroll as Pamela, the film begins with a bang (literally) as shots ring out and Richard finds himself entangled in a plot involving spies, intrigue, and the mysterious "39 steps." Richard soon learns he is being framed for a murder he did not commit, and must turn to Pamela for help. In an oft imitated story device, Richard and Pamela are at one point handcuffed together by authorities, and must spend a duration of the film chained at the wrists. The 39 Steps was adapted from John Buchan's adventure novel of the same name by Charles Bennett and Ian Hay. Rounding out the cast are Luice Mannheim as Annabella Smith, Godfrey Tearle as Professor Jordan, and Peggy Ashcroft as Margaret. In 2007, a theater version of The 39 Steps premiered on Broadway and the West End.moreless
