And so we say farewell to bonnie Scotland
26 February 2012 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

For some reason James Fitzpatrick ,the producer of over 270 films,mostly travelogues was the director of this quota quickie for distribution by MGM featuring the life and work of Robert Burns.Given the short length of the film it is rather episodic and features one supposes the main incidents in the poets life and a number of musical interludes.The title role is taken by a very young Andrew Cruikshank years before he found fame on the TV.It is by any standards a very modest production with the threadbare standards and production values that one would associate with quota quickies of the era.It has to be said that the film repeats Auld Langs Ayne a number of times to make sure that the minimum length is reached.
