#32 39 Steps

More espionage in this one, and this time the secrets revolve around a man named Mr. Memory who has involuntarily had confidential information lodged into his brain! The British film was a great success and other than a convoluted plot that struggles to make little sense, it does provide the classic template of Hitchcock classics involving an innocent man on the run accompanied by a beautiful blonde companion. Ultimately this one is a little too far fetched for my taste, yet credit must be given to a young director who was still establishing his perfect formula.
