A mysterious organization “The 39 Steps” is hot on an ordinary man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt after a woman who claimed to be a spy is murdered. What follows is an exhilarating mix of Hitchcock masterpiece, juicy spy novel intrigue, and a dash of Monty Python madcap in a fast-paced whodunit perfect for all ages.

The 39 Steps was previously released in 1935 by Hitchcock and the British Film Institute ranked it the fourth best British film of the 20th century. It went on to theatre at the West End and Broadway that premiered in 2005.
