The 39 Steps (1935)

dir. Alfred Hitchcock. The movie that I use for my avatar, Robert Donat as Richard Hannay, a classic man-falsely-accused-of murder-on-the-run. Top tier Hitchcock. Full of many memorable scenes, close to perfection. Personal favorites are the cranky farmer with his young bride, the romantic elderly hotel owners, and the undergarment salesmen in the train. The escape across the Scottish Highlands is wonderful, with incredible sets and water features. Can’t stop whistling that tune.
