Scotland’s fear and Scotland’s pride, Rob Roy MacGregor…
This impressive and rarely screened biopic of Scotland’s best-known outlaw stars David Hawthorne in full tartan kilt and tammy and tells the story of the MacGregors in the early 18th century. Shot entirely on location in the Trossachs and nearby Stirling Castle, this gleeful adventure features Scots inter-titles, epic fight scenes, and over 800 men of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders enlisted as extras in a dramatic battle.
To accompany this rare silent source from the British Film Institute National Archive, the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival (HippFest) has commissioned multi-instrumentalist and composer David Allison to create a new score.
The Rob Roy (1922) tour is supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network. It is produced by the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival which is supported by Falkirk Community Trust and Screen Scotland.
