THE JOHN BUCHAN MUSEUM presents Many More Than 39 Steps! John Buchan’s most
famous novel – The 39 Steps – has inspired generations of film makers
since 1935 when Alfred Hitchcock cast Robert Donat as Richard Hannay. In
1958 the role was taken by Kenneth More and in 1978 Robert Powell became
the mining engineer trying to avert a political assassination intended to
trigger World War I. This is an opportunity to see all three classic
films. Each, with very different interpretations of Buchan’s great
adventure story, will be introduced by John Buchan’s grand-daughter.
