Yvonne De Carlo,
Based on a novel by Nigel Tranter, The Bridal Path is a light-hearted look at the somewhat unfortunate results that can come of the continued marrying of fairly close cousins in a restricted and remote community. Set in the Hebrides off Scotland, the story tells how Ewan MacEwan leaves the isle of Eorsa in search of the perfect wife, but finally returns to marry Katie. Written by

The story of a simpleton being sent from an island to the mainland to look for a bride who is not a Catholic nor a Campbell and has a good pair of legs for climbing the hills does not sound very promising. But the story works fairly well.
In the chase by the police across a midgeless Highlands, one is minded of the police chasing Hannay in Hitchcock's The 39 Steps. But as this is a comedy, the chase lacks any tension.
However, the performances are pretty good. George Cole came across well as a Scotsman.
Some of the humour is quite amusing; and even if the comedy situation is a bit silly, the dialogue is not.
The scenery is beautifully shot, and coupling it with the choir from Campbelltown is a masterstroke.
The film is enjoyable and well worth watching.
