Dir: John Eldridge
Starring: Ronald Squire and Kathleen Ryan
A British parliamentary delegation is sent to investigate a Scottish island that pays no road tax
This romantic comedy is based on the 1951 novel of the same name by Eric Linklater. The journey north from London is depicted with the usual stock shots from Brief Encounter (1945) (qv) – night shots of LMS expresses hauled by a ‘Royal Scot’ and a streamlined ‘Coronation Pacific’.
