The 39 Steps is the 1959 remake of Alfred Hitchcock's classic original, directed this time out by Ralph Thomas and adapted, once again, from the novel by John Buchan. Richard Hannay (Kenneth More, A Night to Remember, Sink the Bismark!, Scrooge, Reach for the Sky) is in the park when he sees a nanny he was just talking to grazed by a hit and run driver. He runs to her pram and finds only a gun. After she gets better, he finds her again and she confides in him that her work is of national importance. While he is in another room, she is murdered in his home. Hannay goes on the run from the police using the snippets of information she gave him to look for her contact. However, he falls into danger and must race to uncover a spy ring before they can leave the country with sensitive information.
