    Bob Castle23 January UTC Decided to restore the large description of the plot, and keep the shorter one as a 'plot summary'. Hannay soon goes on the run again, this time taking on the guise of a poor road-mender. Therefore I propose removing the info about the Hitchcock film the side bar info to a less prominent position where it is clear that that info is film related. Grover in a film noir setting climbs a set of stairs counting each one as he ascends.

The story was a great success with the men in the First World War trenches. Conception[ edit ] The 39 Steps was a major British film of its time.

    John Buchan With all titles, the inclusion of a dust jacket will substantially increase the price. Suspecting both the German spy ring and the British police would be after him, Hannay fled to Scotland. I suppose the current form is the most gramatically correct, yet most versions of the book I've seen have the capitalised N, i. Hannay warns Sir Walter and the other officials that the man was an impostor, and they realise the spy is about to return to Europe with the information he has obtained from their meeting.

Thirty-Nine Steps book

In quick succession, we have the adventure of the literary innkeeper, the radical candidate, the bespectacled roadman and the bald archaeologist. The man reveals his name to be Franklin P. At 6 minutes and 33 seconds into the film, both Hitchcock and the screenwriter Charles Bennett can be seen walking past a bus that Robert Donat and Lucie Mannheim board outside the music hall.

A coastguard is brought in with knowledge of the east coast, and he recalls a portion of the coast, a private beach with steps running down to the shore, with a high tide occurring at p.

This stretches credulity to breaking point, but one is swept along by the story, rather like the frantic rush of events in The Da Vinci Code. Therefore I propose removing the info about the Hitchcock film the side bar info to a less prominent position where it is clear that that info is film related.

In total the standard bibliography of his works lists titles in his name, a truly remarkable output. Past discussions have agreed that listing various other collections of thirty-nine items here isn't really encyclopedic.

Book review: The Thirty

The film's plot departs substantially from John Buchan 's novel, with scenes such as in the music hall and on the Forth Bridge absent from the book. Scudder — freelance spy Karolides — Greek Premier under threat of assassination, who never appears and is alluded-to, only Sir Harry — Scottish landowner and would-be politician Sir Walter Bullivant — Sir Harry's relation at the Foreign Office Adaptations[ edit ] The novel has been adapted for many different media, many of which depart substantially from the text, for example, by introducing a love interest absent from the original novel and inspired by Hitchcock's film.

This is lethal, spare, clean and contemporary. After a struggle, two of the men are captured while the third flees to the yacht, which meanwhile has been seized by the British authorities. The plot of The Thirty-Nine Steps is fast-moving but filled with unbelievable coincidences.

Stream audiobook and download chapters.The Thirty-Nine Steps I have seen all three films, but never actually read the book, so I was a little unsure of what I was getting for my money. However Robert Powell's narration is second to none. So good in fact I doubt I will ever wish to watch any of the films again.

10. At the end of The Thirty-nine Steps, Hannay tries to find the man who posed as the First Sea Lord by remembering Scudder's book, in which Scudder wrote down that the enemy would try to escape when.
