Storyline

Major Jim "Lance" Lansing, an American ex-pilot of the U.S. Air Corps, returns to Scotland after the war and finds much trouble in the glen where he settles because of the high-handed activities of the local laird, Sandy Mengues, a wealthy South American who, with his daughter Marissa, has returned to the land of his forefathers. Led by Lansing, the people eventually prevail upon Mengues to restore peace to the glen, but not before a brief and unconvincing fight between Lansing and Dukes, the Mengues foreman.

The Loud Man?
15 March 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Made with massive profits as a sort of sequel to Republic's mega hit of 1952 THE QUIET MAN, this easy to love piece of B pic blarney shows just how stupendously successful THE QUIET MAN actually was. A lot of very profitable films in the UK ran into a law that saw the rentals marooned there and not able to be returned to the USA, in fact Disney and MGM made many films in the UK to soak up the rentals held in a bank trust there by this law. For once in it's budget constricted life the Kingdomof Repubic made soooo much money there they could'nt get it all home and were basically happily forced to make another version of THE QUIET MAN which I am sure suited them fine anyway. Obviously not as big nor as successful as that film, TROUBLE IN THE GLEN was the sort of charming rustic family film made regularly in the UK anyway. GEORDIE is a good example. TROUBLE has a great cast and a few surprises (such as Orson Welles) to add prestige..or maybe he was a Republic favourite after MACBETH. Anyway, TROUBLE is quaint robust fun and just like a hybrid of THE QUIET MAN and their own truly superb Americana drama made in 1956 COME NEXT SPRING and.... LISBON.
