The 39 Steps (1959)
Slightly altered from the Alfred Hitchcock version, this British adaptation of the John Buchan novel stars Kenneth More as the put-upon protagonist sought for the murder of a woman claiming to be a spy. Before her death, she tells More about foreign agents trying to smuggle out military plans. He must then desperately fight to clear his name, before police close in on him, and learn the secret to "the 39 steps." Taina Elg, James Hayter, and Barry Jones co-star. 95 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; photo gallery.
