The 39 Steps

1935 / 86min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: ALFRED HITCHCOCK

CAST: ROBERT DONAT, MADELEINE CARROLL, LUCIE MANNHEIM

Perhaps the most supremely entertaining of Hitchcock’s British films and the blueprint for his great action-thrillers to come, The 39 Steps has dashing Robert Donat as the perennial wrongly-accused hero, rushing to clear his name to save himself from prison and to win the affections of Madeleine Carroll, scouring the scenic Scottish highlands for a spy with a missing digit and an answer to the meaning of the cryptic title phrase.

The 39 Steps is screening as part of Metrograph A to Z, a collection of films we think everybody should see. Click here for more info.
