Hitchcock's adaptation of Buchan's novel proved, as usual, to be an improvement on the source material, adding two key female characters and removing a couple of serious plot implausibilities. Of nearly inestimable importance is that Hitchcock found in "The 39 Steps" a theme that would become his favorite, and one whose variations he would virtually exhaust: an innocent man on the run, clever and resourceful but surrounded by a conspiracy he doesn't understand.
