A few years ago I saw the stage play of this and thought it was absolutely amazing. This film, not so much. Yes it's brilliant in the way the story weaves around all over the place, taking the audience on the adventure with Richard and Pamela, however something is missing. I didn...

A clumsy start to the directing dynasty Hitchcock would later build in America; The 39 Steps is unlike many of his other films in the way it's put together. Hitchcock would later make taut, sometimes action packed thrillers, all with ingenuity and a special zest that would satura...

One of the most timeless films I know. This was Hitchcock's first masterpiece. Though his films got much more elaborate later in his career, all of the things that I love about Hitchcock are here: suspense, comedy, beautiful cinematography and camera movement, etc. This is pure ...

This may have just reinvigorated my love of film. This case of mistaken identity thriller from 1935 is leaps and bounds better than most schlock to hit the screens in the past 30 years. While technically we may be capable of creating flashier and sharper productions, we've lost o...

Apesar de constantemente citado entre seus mais importantes trabalhos e certamente o mais popular filme de sua fase britânica, "Os 39 Degraus" não se tornou parte do consciente popular cinematográfico como as futuras produções de Alfred Hitchcock se tornariam. Tal fato não deve d...

Typical man on the run Hitchcock flick. May have been great for the time, but now all we see is hammy acting and a swiss-cheese of a plot. Still it's fun seeing folk from the 1930s, particularly in the Scottish highlands.

The 39 Steps acts like a blue print, a hint of the greatness that was to come from Hitchcock and the foundations of an amazing body of work. It's where he truly found an audience, it's not his best but it has a certain charm to it unlike any of his other films. In all honesty it'...

This movie is from 1935, and the cast list on here isn't right either. Anyway, I saw this movie such a long time ago (when I was a kid), I don't remember it well at all. I need to see it again.

This is the oldest movie that I've seen (made in 1935), and it took me a bit of time to get adjusted to it as a film from such and early era. After all, it was only recently that I really started enjoying movies from the 50's.
But as I was adjusting to the classic black and whit...
