  • A Story Told Well

    Scandal at Scourie tells the story of religious bigotry, a human failing we wish were past, and the effects it has on otherwise decent people. Sadly, religious differences will likely be with us forever. The film easily resonates with the audience because, in my humble opinion, most of humanity yearns for the harmony it represents as possible for us all. Of course any great film is greatly advantaged by a great cast and crew, and this one is no exception.

    This is one of those unknown movies that does not make it to the all places for viewing. So sad, because it is superb! The story not only heartwarming but beautiful and delightfully enjoyable. The cast are the tops of their day! And, from a Canadian who rarely sees films set in their Country, this was has the charm of a small fictional town in Ontario. Also, depicts not only the conflict between Roman Catholics and Protestants, but also includes the proverbial issues arising between French Canada [Lower Canada] and Ontario [Upper Canada] relations not only religious but politically. So perfectly well done except for one tiny mispronunciation of the word, 'Amen'. In Canada, it's 'Aaaamen'. Americans pronounce the 'A' as 'a'.Everything about this movie is excellent. The story writing, photography, music and, of course, the acting not only by Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon [a Canadian], but Donna Corcoran and all others. Perfectly casted. The Director, Producer, Screen Writers, Photographer, Editor and the Music Composer are all to be congratulated for producing such an exceptionally wonderful film. It's truly a treasure. How I wish it was available on DVD. I want to see it over and over again.I am so curious as to how the story was conceived by the writers. I thought it came from a book, but not so. It is an original screen play. It it always amazes when creative writers get together to conceive such a marvellous story such as this. And, why Ontario? That is special. And, to start the story in Quebec in a Roman Catholic orphanage. Everything about this story is truly original and outstanding. Truly, a classic. It should be shown many times over for this generation to see. I don't think it was ever shown in Canada. At least, I don't recall its billing in Edmonton when it came out in 1953. I was a faithful movie-goer in those days.

    This is another Greer Garson film I love. What great children cast in this film. Agnes Moorehead was terrific. She had a beautiful and regal face as a nun and exuded the innocence necessary for the part. She was so kind and it was nice to see her as this character. I really enjoyed this film and who wouldn't want Greer Garson for a mom? She was so loving and sweet, she did not hold back this love in her scenes.

    This film deals with religious bigotry, and does so effectively. It demonstrates that when people take a respectful but firm stand for something, they can effect much needed change. It is a moral picture and is well done. That's a worthy theme.

    9/23/11 This is the type of movie that needs to be shown more often. Loved it!! It was such a nostalgic movie for me having grown up in Canada. When will it be available to purchase a copy? 5 star rating for me.I'm disappointed it isn't available.

    It's Scourie Oz, McChesneys from the Time Machine. They could afford so little meat like delicacies and desperate to grow mushrooms for beef in the garden. Scandals find not adoption at a Catholic child but Victoria that goes outside without a man and to church without her husband, she wears a nightgown so comfortably everywhere and the children drew not church figurations in school but goldfish inside a bottle. Mayflower was a different timeline from Christopher Columbus just as the McChesneys were decades later from 1887 the year Pansy was born. Mismatched and the wrong offender, the McChesney went for public hearing and Edward resigns from office. Scandals at Scourie is Victoria with an illicit child found of her love affair in the barn yard that set the rumor spreading like fire, Edward refused divorce and resigns from office to keep his wife and her love child. A movie about America but a story in Canada! A harsh critic at Whistlestop tour, Truman is not a country folk. Who care, it's not St Louis! Murder is rarely a crime, because rarely a whistlestop, literally! Go back to China, the rural civil war, no court no trial!

  • this is a very good family movie
