Synopsis

DVD Region 2. Laxdale Hall, a rarely seen Scottish comedy, is a 1952 film directed by John Eldridge and starring Ronald Squire, Kathleen Ryan, Raymond Huntley, Prunella Scales, Fulton Mackay, Roddy McMillan, Jameson Clark and Jean Colin, with Rikki Fulton as a poacher in his first film role.

The few residents of Laxdale who own cars are refusing to pay their road fund licence because of the poor state of the only road which links them to the rest of Scotland.
A parliamentary delegation including Samuel Pettigrew, M.P. (Raymond Huntley) and Andrew Flett (Fulton Mackay) is dispatched to the Scottish Highlands to quell the rebellion! Along the way they encounter resistance from school teacher Morag McLeod (Prunella Scales, in her first film) and her roguish dad, Roderick McLeod (Jameson Clark). With a brief appearance by Rikki Fulton in his film debut as a salmon poacher there's plenty of action and laughter.

Filmed around scenic Applecross, "Laxdale Hall" is not to be missed.

Just a charming, beautiful film. Full of great character actors and familiar faces to Scottish audiences. Side note, James Anderson the older feller in the village hall meeting, worked with Harold Lloyd in the silent films in Holyrood in the 1920's.
