Did You Know?

Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): 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 »
