The character of Kinlochmoidart (Herbert Lomas) is listed in the final credits as Kinloch Moidart implying that is the character's given and family names. It is actually one word Kinlochmoidart. The correct name of the character is Donald MacDonald 4th Chief of the MacDonalds of Kinlochmoidart. Like other MacDonald chiefs, e.g. Sleat, Keppoch, Glengarry, Kinlochmoidart took his familiar name from the location of his clan. See more »
It is difficult to imagine the producer choosing to run with such a poor script. The story of Bonnie Prince Charlie is well loved by so many and it deserved a good treatment. The script is uninteresting, the costumes are cheesy and the acting is bland, especially by David Niven as the Prince himself.
The story is not well put together. I barely knew I had witnessed the end of Culloden, one of Scotland's most famous battles and that the Prince has moved on to his flight into exile. The characters do not seem to be embodying their parts well. If you like battle re-enactments, it may be worth the checking out, but historical drama this is not (neither well-done history nor dramatic).
