Not bad, Not bad at all... considering
27 February 2001 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

It's 1948. Three years after WW2. The American public has not yet been drawn to the glass nipple of TV. Costume dramas do great at the box office. Larry Parks is a few years away from his blacklisting and character assassination and stars in a Scottish swash buckler with lots of swash. It's fun and entertaining. A story with clan wars, colorful kilts and lots of swordplay. Parks was no Flynn, mind you and we probably wouldn't even know him but for his Jolson roles, but this film was great entertainment. What else could you get for $.32, which was what a ticket cost for a kid in 1948. Parks was married to Betty Garrett of musical fame and the Leverne and Shirley TV comedy. It should be mentioned that she stuck by Parks all through those dark years and cared for him while he was dying of a chronic heart condition. No video, at this writing, but if it shows up on the late show, check it out.
