Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps (1935)

Still from Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps (1935)Hitchcock’s first great romantic thriller is a prime example of the MacGuffin principle in action. Richard Hannay is a Canadian tourist in London who becomes embroiled in a deadly conspiracy when a mysterious spy winds up murdered in Hannay’s rented flat and both the police and a secret organization wind up hot on his trail.

With only a seemingly meaningless phrase (“the 39 steps”), a small Scottish town circled on a map, and a criminal mastermind identified by a missing finger as clues, quick-witted Hannay eludes police and spies as he works his way across the countryside to reveal the mystery and clear his name.

Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes (1938)

Still from Alfred Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes (1938)

This classic mystery, and one of Hitchcock’s greatest films, manages to combine humor with a genuine sense of menace. The film is set into motion when a seemingly innocuous old woman, Miss Froy, disappears while on board a train bound for England. It’s up to attractive young Iris (Margaret Lockwood) and brash music student Gilbert (Michael Redgrave) to solve the mystery as they are plunged into an international conspiracy.

No one is as he or she seems, but sorting out the villains from the merely mysterious is a challenge in itself, as our innocents abroad face resistance from the entire passenger list.

Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope (1948)

Poster for Alfred Hitchcock's Rope (1948)James Stewart, Farley Granger and John Dall star in this macabre spellbinder, in which two thrill-seeking friends strangle a classmate and then hold a party for their victim’s family and friends, serving refreshments on a buffet table containing the lifeless body.

When dinner conversation revolves around talk of the “perfect murder,” their former teacher (Stewart) becomes suspicious that his students have turned his intellectual theories into brutal reality.

Hitchcock decided to shoot this film as though it were happening in one long, uninterrupted shot. Since the camera can only hold one 10-minute reel at a time, Hitchcock had to be creative when it came time to change reels, disguising the switches as the camera passed behind someone’s back or moved behind a lamp.
