About the Event:
The popular Alfred Ollivant novel Bob, Son of Battle is the source for this drama about sheep dogs in the Scottish highlands, filmed in mountains in Utah’s Garfield County. Gwenn (Santa Claus in Miracle on 34th Street, released the same year) is a crusty shepherd whose struggling relationship with his son McCallister is complicated by a predatory animal that is attacking the flocks of local shepherds. “There is another and perhaps even more potent star in the picture,” praised Variety. “Technicolor itself and the color job here is grand.” Not on DVD.
Twentieth Century-Fox. 1947. 103 mins. Technicolor.
Director: Louis King.
