Title: The 39 Steps (1935)

Description: Scene at the London Palladium at the climax in The 39 Steps (1935 U.K. film) with Robert Donat (Friedrich Robert Donath; March 18, 1905-June 9, 1958), left, and Madeleine Carroll (Edith Madeleine Carroll; February 26, 1906-October 2, 1987), right, and directed by Alfred Hitchcock (Alfred Joseph Hitchcock; August 13, 1899-April 29, 1980). Donat is wrongly accused of murdering a foreign spy and is on the run, escaping by train (meeting Carroll on board that train) to Scotland where he abducts Carroll and, with her help, exposes a spy network. This tense spy film, made in England, was one of Hitchcock's first big international hits that established him as a master of suspense films. His love of trains as mystery vehicles and uncertain transportation was highlighted in this tense thriller. Further, Hitchcock's traditional use of exterior and interior shots of historic landmarks to inject spectacular reality into his most harrowing scenes is exampled in this scene, shot at the famous London Palladium. His horrific film characters thus invade and disturb an otherwise complacent setting, upsetting the public's traditional perception of such fixed, stable and reassuring landmarks, while visually capitalizing on such universally identifiable structures.
