Free Movie Friday: The 39 Steps

There's this fellah, used to direct movies. Called Alfred Hitchcock. Overweight fellah. He's best known as the guy who directed Rear Window, which was eventually turned into Disturbia. Anyway, something else he did, pretty early on his career, was a movie called The 39 Steps. It's free here.

Thanks to Col Needham for the synopsis:

Richard Hannay is a Canadian visitor to 1930's London. After a disturbance at a music hall, he meets Annabella Smith who is on the run from foreign agents. He takes her back to his apartment, but they are followed and later that night Annabella is murdered. Hannay goes on the run to break the spy ring and thus prove his innocence.

All the classic Hitchcock themes and tropes are there except one: you don't have to pay for this! Enjoy, 'cause it's free movie Friday!
