Hey you Jimmy!
7 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When actor Alex Norton made the film That Sinking Feeling directed by Bill Forsyth, the film had to be re-dubbed for non UK audiences. Norton was fortunate to be able to re-dub his own voice by softening his Scots accent.

Here Norton takes a lighthearted and sideways look at the Scottish accent in TV and film, the good, the bad and the totally baffling of mock jock acting.

There are early examples of Katharine Hepburn in The Little Minister made in the 1930s, to more authentic lilts in films such as Trainspotting and the Disney cartoon The Brave which displayed various regional Scottish accents to acclaim.

Once actors had to tone down their Scots accents when Hollywood came calling and you get to hear from Scottish actors as to their experience when working for the screen especially Hollywood.

Norton throws himself enthusiastically in recreating some scenes from famous Scottish set films but its nothing more than lightweight but lighthearted romp.
