We Bit of Scotland (1949)

** (out of 4)

Lesser entry in the MGM series has James A. FitzPatrick going to Scotland where we get a few brief pieces on its history as well as visit some famous places like Loch Ness (sorry, no monster shows up), the birth of golf in Saint Andrews, Pictish Kingdom and of course there's plenty of side footage of the beautiful forests. Overall this is a pretty bland entry in the series as you really don't get to learn too much and I'd say we don't get to see as much as you normally would either. It just seemed that there was a lot of filler in this episode and the nine-minute running time really dragged in spots. Of course, the Technicolor is the main thing that sticks out and especially the footage dealing with the Loch Ness, which looks terrific.
