The original version of the classic comedy thriller, starring legendary British heart-throb, Robert Donat, was a highlight of Hitchcock's career. While sitting in a London theatre watching a man perform dazzling memory tricks, Richard Hannay and the rest of the audience flee after hearing a gunshot. As he leaves, he encounters a young woman who asks if she can accompany him. Fascinated by her apparent terror, he agrees. During the night, however, she is murdered in his flat, and he must avoid the police long enough to find the real killers and clear his name.

Verloc, the manager of a London West End Cinema, is also the secret chief of a terrorist organisation planning to destroy the London Underground Network. For his next task, he must leave a highly explosive bomb at Piccadilly Circus Station. The bomb is rigged to go off at a certain time and, in a classic piece of Hitchcock mastery, we witness the messenger boy, blissfully unaware of the parcel's contents, killed in a shockingly sudden explosion, together with the passengers on board the bus. But, by an unexpected twist of fate, Verloc is brought to justice.
