The 39 Steps is a 1959 thriller film directed by Ralph Thomas and starring Kenneth More. It is based on the novel of the same name, although it is more a remake of the 1935 film version than a direct adaptation of the novel. As in the previous film, the setting was updated to the then-present day, and the villains were a spy ring intent on stealing British secrets.
