An American girl from Vermont inherits a fortune and goes to Scotland

This Technicolor musical was an updated remake of Jeannie (1941), itself based on the 1940 play of the same name by Aimée Stuart. There is an Edinburgh tram passing in the background of one of the Scottish scenes, passing the Caledonian Hotel on Lothian Street. There is also a scene aboard a boat in the Firth of Forth with excellent views of the Forth Bridge. A steam train does cross during this sequence, but it is impossible to discern otherwise.

A partial but still quite clear view of an Edinburgh Corporation tram outside the Caledonian Hotel
There may also be some trams present in this earlier view looking down Princes Street towards the Scott Monument. The smoke rising on the left belongs to a steam locomotive passing through Princes Street Gardens.
The Forth Rail Bridge forms a suitable backdrop to a trip on the Firth
This is Hawes Pier, South Queensferry, and the bridge dominates its surroundings
