Film: The 39 Steps (based on John Buchan’s book published in 1915)
July 28, 2018
“It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that all contemporary escapist entertainment begins with The 39 Steps.” In 1935 Alfred Hitchcock, drawing on characters and situations created by the action novelist he adored, concocted a classic movie-thriller recipe, starring the then-current heartthrob Robert Donat, also a young Peggy Ashcroft. (B&W of course: not a ‘scary’ Hitchcock film!) with the Victoria University of Wellington Scottish Interest Group. Info: www.wellyscots.wordpress.com
