Quotes

Duncan McLeod: Morning, Jane. Lovely morning.
Jane Foster: Good morning, Mr McLeod.
Duncan McLeod: Did I mention that my other name was Duncan?
Jane Foster: I believe you did. I don't remember mentioning that mine was Jane.
Duncan McLeod: Obviously an oversight
Jane Foster: [looking at him painting] I'm glad to see that you do something else besides smuggling.
Duncan McLeod: Oh, yes.
Jane Foster: Why do you smuggle?
Duncan McLeod: Keeps me out of mischief. I'm afraid you take rather a poor view of me, don't you?
Jane Foster: Possibly. It's quite a normal view to take of people who break laws. I mean, willfully break them.

Great Film
20 May 2016 | by (Eastbourne) – See all my reviews

I have this film on DVD, it is a great film from the 1950's, great acting and a good story line makes this movie, and with most old movies they where film on location as is this one, not in a studio I think it is always good to get a feeling of natural surroundings, which was filmed in Sussex in one of my local pubs, which is called "The Star Inn" the pub is located in the small coastal village of Normans Bay, East Sussex and still retains a lot of the original features from the movie. The pub dates back to 1402. Dora Bryan was in the film, she sadly died back in 2014 in Hove, East Sussex which is not far from where this film was made. I think most of the cast has sadly departed us now.
