Hitch's best British films, in my opinion. I give 39 Steps the vote just because I think the pacing is better- Lady, while wonderful, bogs down a bit in the third act.
Two solid older Hitchcocks. I prefer The 39 Steps because it's well paced and doesn't have as many flaws as The Lady Vanishes. The latter is also a good film, though.
The 39 Steps for me. The ending is great (I thank you!), the central relationship is sexier, and it's more fun all round.
Two of my favorite Hitchcock movies. Robert Donat is fantastic in the 39 Steps and the story is slightly stronger than The Lady Vanishes but the latter is a little crazier and more fun.
I love the concept behind The Lady Vanishes, but as someone else mentioned after we figure the mystery out it becomes less interesting. The 39 Steps keeps it going all the way through and ends fantastically.
