Most excellent movie, and a quid + cheaper than elsewhere

A Texas oil company attempts to buy out a Scottish fishing village for a refinery, and the result is utter confusion. To make matters more complicated, one of the town's least prominent citizens owns a strategic piece of property which he refuses to sell. A warm, acclaimed comedy, starring Burt Lancaster and PEter Riegert, from writer-director Bill Forsyth (GREGORY'S GIRL).

Many films have been on TV for free it doesn't mean this isn't a great find.

One of the best films ever made, beautiful scenery and great characters. A great story. Excellent find Andy. Thanks.

Excellent scene that one .

I also like where they are all around the telephone box with a toddler in a pram , the Yank asks
" who's baby ? " , they all go quiet !

If I hadn't had an email from lovefilm saying they'd sent it off my list today I'd be snapping one up.
Hot

One of the best films ever made. Sure, it has been on the council telly often enough, but it's well worth owning for £2.99.

Previously available on DVD with an unenhanced transfer and no special features, I believe this edition has a much better transfer and a 20-minute interview with writer/director Billy Forsyth.

I've ordered one to replace my spartan Region 1 DVD.

i used to live in the village pennan where they filmed local hero !!!

great soundtrack
