Men in kilts, 22 March 2001
Author: psteier from New York

Lillian Gish plays Annie Laurie, who's father tryies to mediate the feud between the MacDonalds and Campbells in mid eighteenth century Scotland. Annie Laurie falls in love with Ian MacDonald, son of the MacDonald chieftain and ends up in the middle of a treacherous massacre by the Campbells.

Made in the grand Hollywood style, some of the action sequences are well done, but nothing to go out of the way for.
