Description

From "Whisky Galore" and "Edge of the World" to "Local Hero" and "Highlander", Scotland has been presented on film in various degrees of reality by both Hollywood and British film-makers. This book gives an illustrated analysis of the myth and reality in Scottish films over the last 60 years. It surveys and summarises each film in chronological order and places it in historical context. Production details of the more important films are discussed and the difficulties of funding in Britain are outlined. The book also examines the whole problem of presenting a realistic and recognisable picture of national life and achievement, whether of Scotland, America or Australia.show more
