39 Steps, BBC, DVD. 2010. Starring Rupert Penry-Jones and Lydia Leonard. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, a remake of the 1935 film. The hero has returned from fighting in German South Africa. It is the eve of World War I and a free-lance spy is chased into his flat. The spy passes on an encrypted diary that must be taken to a Captain in the British secret service. He is to trust no one else. Our charming hero makes his way to Scotland, pursued by German bad guys in cars, planes and on the train. The British public also thinks he is a murderer as the spy was murdered in his flat.
He meets up with a suffragette, Victoria, and she joins him in flight. She helps him escape using her hair pin to open various locks. Of course, they fall for each other. Many twists and turns ensue. It kept me on the edge of my seat until the end.
