Too Bad Couldn't Be Shot In Scotland
Still don't care much for Parks,but Macready steals the picture as vile Glowan who'll stop at nothing to keep the woman he wants,but doesn't want him.Too bad,cuz he's hunky.Good sword fights,one almost cost Macready his hand due to raging infection.Have that on good authority.Well worth viewing.
Just read that Macready developed a severe infection of his hand after a sword fight-come to find out,a piece of the glove he was wearing somehow became imbedded in his hand,the hand swelled and he had to have surgery when they found a piece of glove the cause of swelling/infection.Thankfully,no residual effects.This really was a great film except for a tepid performance from Parks.The Glowans were great.Swordfights well-staged.
The Warring Of The Clans
Romeo & Juliet?Neither one dies.More similarities to Adventures Of Robin Hood And The Mark Of Zorro.The games reminds me of Bravehart.The swordfight on horseback is awesome.Really enjoyed this film!
Behind Blue Eyes
Macready wants to marry Lady Babs,but she has her eye on a non-Glowan.Glower may sum up the Glowans.Can see similarities To Adv Of Robin Hood (1938) and The mark Of Zorro.Macready a very convincing murderous thug,and would prefer him to a slight Larry Parks,whose acting is all right,nothing in Macready's class.Highly recommend!
The Swordsman (1947)
Just finished watching and was so amazing my wife wants to buy itexcellent scenery and wonderful portrayal for a 1940's picture.not as much as true to the 18th century Scotland as it is to the era that produced the picture, but still well worth watching.
