Publisher's Summary

This radio dramatization of the classic Hitchcock movie originally aired on December 13, 1937.The Lux Radio Theatre was one of radio's most popular series, attracting Hollywood's top stars and boasting a lavish budget. It began in 1934 by featuring dramas from Broadway, but there was not enough material to support the show. In an attempt to reverse the slipping ratings, the show was moved to Hollywood in 1936, where there was plenty of material and talent. In fact, filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille often served as the host.

Refreshingly Different

STORY - (1937 Radio Show - Alfred Hitchcock) The 39 Steps is a very short, fast-moving story where the main characters are trying to locate a spy who has secrets of national importance. I was disappointed because it lacks Hitchcock's usual eerie flair, but it is still entertaining.

(This is one of eight stories you will receive if you purchase Alfred Hitchcock's Radio Movie Collection. This review is an abbreviated version of the one I wrote for the first book I heard, Shadow of a Doubt).

PERFORMANCE - Great multi-voice performance by professional actors and actresses, with music and sound effects.

OVERALL - Recommended for all listeners, but mainly because of the awesome performance.
