The Thirty-nine Steps

Screen Shot 2014-04-27 at 8.08.19 AM
Just watched The Thirty-nine Steps for the 50-11th time. Released in 1943 but set before WWII as pre-war tensions were riding about the time of the Battle of Britain, Germany is clearly the unnamed foreign government trying to steal the plans for the RAF’s new engine, aided and abetted by a cabal of upper class, National Front types. Fascists in the 30’s, this type of Brit, the very model of the genteel anti-Semite (a British specialty), now inhabit the left wing student groups of the English university.—Rabbi Baker
