Lee and Daniel return to cover one of the films that put Alfred Hitchcock on the map, that being "The 39 Steps" (1935). Some of the conversation revolves around early examples of Hitchcock's visual style and techniques, and tropes. Other things covered: Hitchcock abusing his actors (especially the women); differences between the film and its source material; Hitchcock getting away with sexy situations in the post-code era; and how the hosts could turn this into a Bikini Carwash film (because of course we do). A listener comment is also responded to.
