Critics reviews

Even as every plot device from this thriller has been worn smooth by decades of reuse, THE 39 STEPS stands out in Hitchcock’s body of work for its uncommonly playful lightness… The adventure serves to showcase [Hanney’s] polyvalence rather than the other way around. His bravado is irresistible to the audience, to the dames, and to us, the viewers.
