Just wanted to let you all know that due to lack of time I have decided  that The Hitchcock Papers will no longer be updated. It has been fun however, I thought it best to consolidate. Subsequently, some of the postings that appear here will be moved over to Twentyfourframes,  and any new Hitchcock related postings will appear there as well (coming up later this week a review of The Lady Vanishes).

The blog, for now, will stay up but I may shut it down. I want to thank everyone who has visited and hope that you will stop by at 24frames.

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have…(mystery chords!) THE 39 STEPS, Broadway’s most intriguing, most thrilling, most riotous, most UNMISSABLE comedy smash!  The mind-blowing cast of 4 plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure.

 

Seeking a frivolous night out at the theatre, Richard Hannay is lured into a world of intrigue by a mysterious woman claiming to be a spy. When she winds up dead in his flat, he flees London with the police hot on his trail.

 

THE 39 STEPS features a cast of four actors who, against all odds, breathlessly and hilariously attempt to reenact all of the characters, locations and famous scenes in Hitchcock’s 1935 film thriller with just a few props and a lot of theatrical ingenuity and split second quick changes.

 

A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, THE 39 STEPS amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!

 Farley Granger, Robert Walker and Ruth Roman starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1951 thriller of Patricia Highsmith’s novel “Strangers on a Train.” The movie opened on July 4th at the Warner Theater (formerly The Strand) in New York.

Bosley Crowthers who over the span of his too long career managed to misread so many now classic films that he should be considered one of the worst critics ever be allowed to be published on the printed page.   Here is his laughable  New York Times  review.

Here’s Hitchcock looking a little jealous as he directs Cary Grant in a scene kissing Grace Kelly.
