"I know what it is to feel lonely & helpless & to have the whole world against me, & those are things that no men or women ought to feel." The 39 Steps (Richard Hannay #1), John Buchan. Hannay’s boredom w/ London society is soon relieved when the engineer from South Africa is caught up in a web of secret codes, spies & murder. When a neighbor is killed in his flat, Richard, suspected, decodes a journal, runs to the wilds of his native Scotland & evades Germans & officials."
The 39 Steps. 1935. Dir: Alfred Hitchcock. Passing Thoughts: Part of a stream of early hitchcocks I've been watching (Spellbound - meh, Rebecca - oh yes). Even more train scenes. Rab says in book there is an airplane scene simialr to North by Northwest. Enjoyed resolution with the quiz master. Enjoyed: Robert's snide comments about Scottish accents
