About

Debonair bachelor, Richard Haney (Robert Donat) is thrown into a murder mystery when a seductive spy is murdered in his flat. As he escapes from the law and ventures through the Scottish countryside in search of the true murderer, he stumbles upon red herrings, villains and love. With iconic moments that inspired later Hitchcock films like NORTH BY NORTHWEST and STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, THE 39 STEPS is considered a milestone in suspenseful thrillers.
