FILM AT THE FESTIVAL : The Thirty Nine Steps (1978)
June 13 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This movie needs little introduction and is generally regarded as the closest to the book by John Buchan, being set at the same time as the novel was, in pre-Great War 1914. The story follows a mining engineer named Richard Hannay who tries to prevent Prussian agents from executing a political assassination designed to trigger World War I.
