About the Movie
Vivien Leigh plays the daughter of politician Cecil Parker in a small Scottish town who is under attack by the local paper. Rex Harrison plays the reporter who writes an embarrassing article about her father when he orders a dog to be put down because its feisty owner, an elderly widow (Allgood), can't afford a license. While Harrison battles with the father, he also falls head over heels in love with his beautiful daughter, in this fast-moving, Ealing-style comedy.
I had never heard of this movie until I heard it being promoted on my local PBS station.
I searched you tube and found a poor quality version not worth putting in your iTunes library.
Then I tried a search in iTunes and was shocked to find it there.
They're transfer is one of the best I've ever seen for a film from this era (1938).
So I ended up being surprised on three levels:
This film is much better then you would expect
iTunes had it for sale in their store
The transfer is nearly perfect (especially for 1938!)
