39 Steps Marathon

Just finished a 39 Steps marathon having watched 4 versions. From worst to best are the 1978 version starring Micheal Powell getting a 4/10. This is upposed to be closest to the book but is just too unbelievable especially at the end with Powell hanging form the clock's hands. Next is the 1959 version starring Kenneth More which is average at best, 6/10. Thw BBC version is not bad getting q 7/10 but the best, not surprisingly is the Hitchcock version, 8/10. It proves how good he was. Out of the 4 using the same or very simialr stories his was the best by quite a bit
