Dundee Courier (23/Mar/1935) - Film Company in Glencoe




"Shots" for John Buchan Story

Mr Alfred Hitchcock, of Gaumont-British Pictures, who is directing the film version of "The Thirty-Nine"steps," by John Buchan, along with Mr Tennyson, assistant director, are making their headquarters at Fort-William for the filming of several episodes in the film.

They have visited Glencoe, and in this romantic neighbourhood have made shots of the police cordon closing round wrongly-suspected hero of the story, Richard Hanney. They have also visited the Mallaig districts and made several shots.

Half of the action has been laid in the Highlands, but the company have "constructed" a large area of the Highlands at their headquarters at Shepherd's Bush.
