I actually enjoy more of this version of the Buchan novel than the Hitchcock version, possibly due to the set-pieces like the climax on Big Ben and the paralysis scene in the health spa. Powell is a very good Hannay and I'd be keen to see him as the same character in the TV series that followed. The direction isn't as flashy as the Hitchcock version and it's more like a TV movie than a big screen version but with a strong cast and some good sequences this is well worth checking out.
Far better than Hitchcock's overrated adaptation
Although the Hitchcock version is superior, this does have its moments.
