Having visited the site of the Battle of Culloden a few years ago, I look forward to seeing how it is portrayed in this month's Literary Flick, The Master of Ballantrae. The film, produced in 1953, is an adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's book.
After the defeat of the Jacobites at Culloden, Jamie returns home, but is betrayed by his mistress when she catches him with another woman. He escapes with an Irish adventurer, Colonel Francis Burke (Roger Livesey), and becomes embroiled with pirates in the West Indies.
