As a child this was one of my favourite films, it's perfect for that rainy Sunday afternoon. Although it is, in my mind, a great romp of a film, to say that it remains accurate to the book is a little generous. The ending, for example? I won't give anything away to those who haven't yet (I say that because you really should watch it) seen it, but to say that it adds a little of the fantastical is to do it an injustice. Still, to all but the most ardent of Buchan purists this will be/is an excellent film. Adventure, danger, intrigue, romance...they're all there.
