Last night I finally got round to watching a film that I've always wanted to see but had never manged to:

The 39 Steps (1978 version starring Robert Powell).

A really enjoyable period thriller directed by Don Sharp who of course was the director of Guardian of the Abyss.

Worth a watch when its on TV next.

and dont forget Neal, Don also directed several classic films for Hammer inc Kiss of the vamipre / rasputin and devil ship pirates along with episodes of the classic Avengers series, a very nice man indeed i had the pleasure of meeting him during the late 1990's at the barbican in london

I remember watching the Robert Powell film years ago and have always asociated that film with him. But it was a remake wasnt it?

It sure is, the original starred Kenneth Moore, i think it was made in 1939 although i could be wrong on the date

Will have to look some of those up. Probably saw some in my youth, especially if they were the Emma Peel episodes :D
