The 39 Steps Reviews
Whilst More's performance is good, the movie suffers from the original by a lack of tension. There is tension in the movie, but not as much as the Alfred Hitchcock version, and this is where the movie is let down. One more theatrical version would be made 19 years later.
This one is still watchable though and perhaps this version or the other version in 1978 because both of those were made in technicolour whereas Alfred Hitchcock's was done in black-and-white. If you are against black-and-movies, then perhaps this version is for you.
Not my fav Hitchcock's movie but I've seen it more than once.
