Scotland, Going to the Dogs . . . .

In a small town of Baikie on the east coast of Scotland there is a distinguished wealthy townsman that everyone respects and allows to lead the town. Trouble is, he is a bit overbearing . . . . Well, maybe a lot overbearing . . . he thoughtlessly tramples on the lives and feelings of the 'little people' thinking that they don't really matter, and will follow him blindly regardless of his condescending attitude towards them. Cecil Parker, acting as the town Provost Willie Gow, is the definition of 'pompous ass.' Provost Gow wants to become the most popular national politician in Scotland, and nothing will stop him . . . . Nothing and No One. Enter Rex Harrison as a young brash newspaper reporter from England that doesn't fear or respect Mr. Gow, and calls him out for being nasty to an old lady that cannot afford to pay for her dog's license. For the price of a town dog license, he orders that her puppy be put to death, and the young reporter puts the story on the front page of the town newspaper. Suddenly Provost Gow is the most hated man in his Scottish village, and when he still insists that the dog be killed, it will attract the attention of the bigger newspapers around Scotland and even in faraway London. All of a sudden it is war between the masses of poor people that are supporting the old lady to get her dog back and the desire of the wealthy and pompous Provost Gow, who tries to end his troubles by trying to destroy both the old lady and the young reporter. He orders the prosecutor to charge the reporter with a crime . . . Any crime . . . . Just make sure that the young reporter spends his days in jail. It appears that pompous Provost will destroy the young impetuous newspaper reporter. . . . Of course no movie, even in Scotland, would end with the pompous bully crushing the young principled reporter . . . . Oh, Did I mention that Vivien Leigh is the young beautiful daughter of the pompous Provost? While the whole town . . . . Nay, the whole of Scotland is going to the dogs, a beautiful love story breaks out! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
