And therefore in John Buchan's THE THIRTY-NINE STEPS, the novel the film's based on? (I haven't read it.) TM

   The "Girl In Trouble"/"Girl As Spy" theme can be traced back at least as far as that woman in Robert Donat's apartment in the 1935, Hitchcock-directed "Thirty-Nine Steps." With a bit of effort, one can probably find examples even earlier.
    Anyone up to trawling through the works of E. Phillips Oppenheim or Anthony Hope?
