Wonderful Hitchcock film with some very good laughs and an intriguing story. I remember the film being mentioned in a film class I took in college, but never saw the film. Did not watch carefully enough to see the Hitchcock cameo. Saw it on TCM.

A question for those who have seen the film. Why did Memory not answer the question that was asked repeatedly, "What causes the pip in poultry?" He knew all the other answers.

I'm a big Hitch fan and this one is a favorite.

The cameo is hard to catch. He's throwing away some trash at ~7min, as everyone leaves the music hall.

Here's the entire film with commentary by Marian Keane, a Hitchcock expert. It's from The Criterion Collection and is very well done.

Thanks I caught the cameo of Hitchcock. I also listened to the commentary. Thank you for that as well.

I'm assuming y'all are discussing the 2nd version.

Didn't he make this film twice?

He made The Man Who Knew Too Much twice, 1934 (Peter Lorre, Leslie Banks) & 1956 (Jimmy Stewart, Doris Day).

AFAIK, The 39 Steps was not remade by Hitch. It has been remade by others, but not very successfully. North by Northwest is kinda similar.
