Goofs

When Lady Margaret is wounded, there is a framed portrait of a man visible in the room behind her. From the style of his wig, it clearly dates from several decades after the setting of the story - probably 1780s. See more »

Long time ago
25 July 1999 | by sandy-97See all my reviews

Although I said I had seen this film before it was at least 44 years ago and I was only a strapping lad of about 6 or 7 so my comments of the film might be touched with some nostalgia.I have incidently seen the new release of Rob Roy several times but I somehow prefer the 1953 version.
