Very Disappointing
25 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

As the Press Book credits are somewhat different from those published on IMDb, I think the easiest way to handle the matter is to reproduce them here in full:

Benita Hume (the lady), Percy Marmont (James Fitzjames), Lawson Butt (Roderick Dhu), James Carew (Lord Moray), Haddon Mason (Malcolm Graeme), James Douglas (himself), Sara Francis (Blanche), Leo Dryden (Allan Bayne), Hedda Bartlett (Margaret), J. Nelson Ramsay (Brian).

Director: JAMES A. FITZPATRICK. Screenplay: James A. Fitzpatrick, Angus Macphail. Based on the poem by Sir Walter Scott. Titles: Sir Walter Scott. Photography: James Wilson, Bert Dawley, Leslie Rowson. Music adapted and conducted by Nathaniel Shilkret, played by The Victor Concert Orchestra. Song: "Eileen, Sweet Eileen" composed by Nathaniel Shilkret. Producer: Michael Balcon.

A Gainsborough Picture, released in the U.K. through Select Films: December 1928. Sound version released in the U.K.: July 1931. Original U.K. length: 5,168 feet. 57 minutes (at sound speed). Not copyright in the USA by Fitzpatrick Pictures. U.S. release: 1 November 1930. Los Angeles opening: 11 October 1930. 5 reels. 4,749 feet. 52 minutes.

COMMENT: Admittedly, he's unflatteringly photographed, but Percy Marmont makes a woeful lead in this ploddingly faithful adaptation of Sir Walter Scott's now dated and well out-of-fashion epic poem. The lovely Benita Hume doesn't shine over-brightly either. As might be anticipated, James A. Fitzpatrick has angled his camera at some very picturesque Scottish locations (which are not particularly well served in the current Alpha DVD), but when it comes to other directorial functions, Fitzpatrick is much less adept. Students of Scottish history might gain something from the movie, but for the rest of us, it comes close to failure.
