The 39 Steps (1935)

The Robert Powell version was the first version I saw, it was boring, recently that Rupert Penry-Jones one was on TV and I watched it because my friend Calum was an extra, it was AWFUL. But I'm off to see the comedy play in London next week (for the fourth time in as many years, I might add) so I thought I'd watch the Hitchcock that it's based on to get me in the mood.
Bloody funny.
It was hilarious and exciting, I loved it and I can't wait to see the play again.

  1. Oh yeah, the Rupert Penry-Jones one was pretty dreadful. I had forgotten about that. And I have eternal goodwill towards Rupert Penry-Jones ever since I saw him in Virtual Sexuality with Laura Fraser...hilarious!
