Of all the classics produced by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, this may be the most unsung, but it's undoubtedly the most entrancing. As the headstrong young woman and the laird who distracts her from her stuffy fiancé, Wendy Hiller and Roger Livesey are superb, and there's knowing support from Pamela Brown, John Laurie and Finlay Currie. Alfred Junge's sets cleverly blend Hebridean scenery and Art Deco, while the photography of Erwin Hillier is as beautiful as it is atmospheric. But it's the expert mix of romance and comedy, arresting use of the landscape and respectful fascination with the local culture that make this so compelling.


A headstrong woman on her way to marry her wealthy fiance for his money stops off at a sleepy Scottish seaside town. There she meets a charming but penniless naval officer, presenting her with a dilemma when she starts to fall in love with him. Romantic drama directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, with Wendy Hiller, Roger Livesey, Pamela Brown, John Laurie and Finlay Currie.
