Just like the rest of us, Alfred Hitchcock was into self-improvement.  When Hitchcock directed his masterful North by Northwest in 1959, he was actually just adding polish to a film he’d already made in England in 1935 — The 39 Steps.  If you watch both movies, you will notice the similarities:  wrongfully accused man on the run, cool blonde at his side, action sequences tinged with humor, etc.  Watch Robert Donat (Cary Grant) and Madeleine Carroll (Eva Marie Saint) for free by clicking here.
