Reading John Buchan's The Thirty Nine Steps I quite liked this quote:
...But my necessities did not allow me to contemplate oddnesses or to pick and choose my supports
Chasing the quote Google thought I was on the wrong track:
Did you mean: But my necessities did not allow me to contemplate addresses or to pick and choose my supports
Great book, and the movie with Kenneth More is still one of my all-time favourites

Picked up the book for $2 and I'm really enjoying it, Niall.
I like the More film, but I think I prefer the Hitchcock. Does More quite cut it as Hannay?
I think Donat definitely does.
I was reading about the films and may post something tomorrow. It's interesting to see what was added in the screenplay of the 35 film. I think it was quite complementary.
