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 »
When I saw this had a rating of 4.9 and a running time of 130 mins I was expecting a disappointing long slog of a movie and I admit it's no great film by any means but it's also no way as bad as the 4.9 rating suggests. The DVD that I watched which was from The David Niven Screen Icons collection was only 112 minutes and had a good for its age unremastered colour picture that made the most of the rich colours of the costumes and landscape. Expecting it to be a longer film I saw it in two sittings and it was hard to get into at first but by about halfway I was quite engrossed by the story and thought it was well told. No doubt its failure at the box office along with its high cost has dented its reputation but that doesn't mean it's a terrible film. I would give it a 6/10.
