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! With a brief appearance by Rikki Fulton in his film debut as a salmon poacher there's plenty of action and laughter. Filmed amongst the beautiful scenery of Applecross, Laxdale Hall is not to be missed.
Special features: Emma's Dilemma a silent comedy made by Rikki Fulton who plays all the parts. A tale of a young woman and her baby in terrible peril! Subtitles in English for the deaf and hard of hearing.
