    The 39 Steps (Gaumont, 1935). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Sure to be a knockout with Hitchcock fans, this extremely rare one sheet has only been offered by Heritage once in ten years. 39 Steps was one of director Alfred Hitchcock's first major international successes, and many of the stylistic and thematic elements that would become integral parts of his later work can be seen in this important picture. Robert Donat stars as Richard Hannay, an innocent bystander to the murder of a secret agent. When he is accused of the crime, Hannay is on the run from the police as he tries to find the real killers. The beautiful Madeleine Carroll plays Pamela, who reluctantly is trapped into helping Hannay. The secret to all of the twisting mysteries lies with Mr. Memory and the man with a missing finger. This dynamite piece displays extraordinarily, as professional restoration has expertly addressed condition issues including pinholes in the corners, a small missing top left corner, a tear in the bottom border slightly into the background, and small chips and tears in the top, bottom and left border. Sublime color and dramatic images of the stars make this a definite center piece for a well conceived collection. Very Fine- on Linen.
