A film by Alfred Hitchcock

Considered the best of Alfred Hitchcock’s pre-Hollywood films, THE 39 STEPS displays the knack for cloak and dagger, tension and sharp wit for which the Master of Suspense has become renowned. Richard Hannay meets the mysterious Annabella after a music hall mellée. She begs Hannay for help, insinuating dark forces at work, and he agrees to shelter her at his London digs; but when she is murdered in the dark of night, he is squarely in the frame.

Fleeing to Scotland, Hannay finds himself chased by both police and enemy agents, and on the lam with icy blonde Pamela. Desperate to clear his name, he must keep one step ahead of his pursuers and discover what on earth the 39 Steps are...

Loosely based on John Buchan’s beloved adventure novel, THE 39 STEPS is ranked among the five greatest British film of all time by the BFI.
