Trivia

Lorna Doone cookies were introduced in 1912 by Nabisco. According to John Barrows, former senior manager for marketing communications (1998) at Nabisco: "No record exists as to the exact motivation behind the selection of that name, but in those days [1912] shortbread biscuits were considered a product of Scottish heritage, and the Lorna Doone character was symbolic of Scotland."

Excellent adaptation
29 December 2003 | by (MN) – See all my reviews

Lush scenery, great acting, and a good adaptation of the classic book all combine to make this movie a real 'sleeper.' I'd never heard of it before, but was glad to have discovered it by accident. Somewhat predictable, it is still thoroughly enjoyable. The musical score, while not available separately, is really beautiful. Even my husband enjoyed the movie (of course, the leading actress may have been the reason for that!).
