Hamish Macpherson compares the Marquis of Montrose unfavourably with his ancestors, eliding his grandfather, James Graham, the first Marquis ("the great Montrose") with John Graham of Claverhouse, Viscount Dundee ("the bonnie Dundee") as if they were the same person. They were, in fact, only distantly related and overlapped in date only briefly: Montrose lived 1612-1650, Dundee 1648-89. It is unclear whether this is an error of the script or whether it is meant to indicate that Hamish's reminiscences are unreliable and overblown. See more »

ROB ROY, THE HIGHLAND ROGUE (Harold French, 1953) **1/2
24 January 2010 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Walt Disney's follow-up to THE STORY OF ROBIN HOOD AND HIS MERRIE MEN (1952) is this similar epic about another legendary outlaw (emanating from Scotland this time around). He is once again played by Irishman Richard Todd (who has just passed away at the venerable age of 90) and the film even re-unites the actor with his three co-stars from yet another period outing from the Disney Studios, THE SWORD AND THE ROSE (1953), namely Glynis Johns, James Robertson Justice and Michael Gough. For some reason, the film is fairly maligned (awarded a measly *1/2 by the "Leonard Maltin Film Guide"!) but I rather enjoyed it, while readily admitting to be the least of Disney's three colorful adventures derived from the pages of English history. In traditional Disney fashion, the familiar events were simplified (though by no means rendered juvenile, as would often prove the case later) but there is enough sprawling action and engrossing drama – to say nothing of the beautiful scenery captured in gleaming Technicolor – to please most audiences. Similarly, characterization for this type of larger-than-life fare is pretty much standard but, given careful casting all round, it emerges as forceful rather than clichéd; besides, at a terse 81 minutes, the film has little chance of outstaying its welcome. Incidentally, I had found the flabby, oddly uninvolving and ill-cast 1995 remake (which had garnered critical praise and at least one top Oscar nod back in the day) a major disappointment on my sole viewing so far!
