Laxdale Hall (1953)

1953 | UK | John Eldridge | ★★★★

John Eldridge's Laxdale Hall is a decidedly gentle yet hilariously irreverent Ealingesque David-vs-Goliath comedy based on Eric Linklater's 1951 novel, featuring amiable performances, attractive location photography, and memorable comic set-pieces.


"The few residents of Laxdale who own cars are refusing to pay their road fund licence because of the poor state of the only road which links them to the rest of Scotland. A parliamentary delegation is dispatched to the Scottish Highlands to quell the rebellion!" Panamint Cinema
