Interesting Movies From The Past...

One of the most lovable and enduring movies I have ever watched is The Bridal Path starring Bill Travers and released in 1959. Bill plays a Hebridean farmer who is forbidden by certain members of the community to marry his first cousin, and most of the women on the island are first cousins. In an effort to find a wife he sets out to the mainland where his many adventures soon get him into trouble with the police. He is accused of being a white slaver, of poaching, upsets the Highland Games, and is chased by angry police across the highlands. He makes his way back to his island to find that his cousin does not care if they are cousins, and wants to marry him whatever the considerations, and upon this, they set off for the Island of Mull and marriage. A lovely comedy with fantastic colourful Scottish scenery.
