I'm the world's biggest John Huston fan, world's biggest John Hurt fan, but there's a reason this film didn't succeed and you've never heard of it. It's just a very very shaggy story of a Scottish highwayman/rogue/scoundrel, played beautifully by John Hurt but amounting to very little in way of engagement or impact. Beautifully shot, funny, colorful, but the screenplay never really amounts to anything beyond a series of action pieces that are competently filmed. The frame is filled with amusements but the the story is largely empty of anything beyond skits, winks and nods. Breaks my heart to say it! I would still recommend seeing it because it's Huston and Hurt, but it doesn't match the towering achievements of either great film artist.

Not the best movie that I've ever seen, but it is quite rare and Amazon is one of a few places to have it. Instant video is a good way to try it out before deciding to purchase. It's a comedy adventure. If you are a fan of young John Hurt or Pamela Franklin, there is a lot of scenes with both of them in it. It also stars Nigel Davenport. There are beautiful scenes of the U.K. countryside.

John Hurt and the other actors are fine but the script never becomes the "Tom Jones" it would like to be. Expected more from Huston.

A curiosity shot by John Huston in Ireland where he lived at that time. It's a harmless movie that will please the fans of Annie (Special Anniversary Edition), another John Huston film bought by completists only. Beautiful landscapes, John Hurt in one of his first films, nice production design. Already forgotten.
