It does a respectable job not only with the story's adventure but with its humor.

Audience Reviews for The 39 Steps

Almost a scene-by-scene remake of Hitchcock's 1935 original, again a contemporary version, this time the secret plans are for a ballistic missile. In some ways its better than the original, colour cinema, no more hammy acting, and real location shots add something but somehow the plot isn't revealed quite so clearly, perhaps too many location shots make the plot exposition scenes more rushed?

A decent enough mystery, but it didn't really wow me.

Super Reviewer

Hitchcock's version is superior, but this one is well done.
