The Mark Steyn Show

Steyn on the Media

Happy St David's Day to our Welsh listeners and viewers - and greetings from The Mark Steyn Caribbean Cruise!

The main theme of our conversation was the woeful state of the ...

Were sensible people really living for years with the near certainty that another war was on its way? If so, it must have been intolerable; if not, it would explain a lot. Proof of this dismal mood is actually abundant even in entertainment – like Alfred Hitchcock's 1935 thriller The 39 Steps, one of the director's earliest and greatest successes. It's the story of a man who accidentally stumbles onto proof that a foreign power is actively conspiring to gain advantages in peacetime that will benefit it immensely with the coming of war – a war that ...
