Full movie description "Trouble in the Glen":Major Jim "Lance" Lansing, an American ex-pilot of the U.S. Air Corps, returns to Scotland after the war and finds much trouble in the glen where he settles because of the high-handed activities of the local laird, Sandy Mengues, a wealthy South American who, with his daughter Marissa, has returned to the land of his forefathers. Led by Lansing, the people eventually prevail upon Mengues to restore peace to the glen, but not before a brief and unconvincing fight between Lansing and Dukes, the Mengues foreman.
Reviews of the Trouble in the GlenTo understand why Trouble In the Glen was brought to the screen at all is to remember this is also the studio that produced The Quiet Man which was taken from another Maurice Walsh story.
John Ford wanted to do the film for years and went with Republic Pictures because he didn't have to pay for John Wayne's services. Still the penny pinching founder and head of Republic, Herbert J. Yates drove Ford crazy with his budget cutting here and there. It was a miracle the film was made at all and on location.
So when The Quiet Man becomes a big artistic and commercial triumph, now Yates must be thinking himself a genius so why not assemble the same team, but without that troublesome John Ford. Go to Herbert Wilcox to produce and direct and we can even get Orson Welles who'll do just about anything to finance his projects. Since we'd now have to pay John Wayne a big salary since he's no longer under contract to Columbia, we'll get a second line actor like Forrest Tucker for his role.
I can see all the wheels turning in Mr. Yates's mind as he probably plunged enthusiastically into Trouble in the Glen which can be described as a Scottish version of The Quiet Man. The problem is that it really did need the touch of John Ford to make it a great film.
As it is it's not a bad film, Orson Welles and Victor McLaglen are at their scene stealing best. Forrest Tucker and Margaret Lockwood who is Welles's daughter are an attractive pair of romantic leads. The film is about an heir to a Scottish estate returning from South America and taking over the family place, but then getting into a quarrel with the locals and cutting them off from the use of a road running through his property. Forrest Tucker is like John Wayne, the stranger from America who has ties to the place also that we don't really learn about until almost the end of the film.
Trouble in the Glen has the same kind of beautiful location cinematography that The Quiet Man has. But it really needed someone like John Ford at the helm.
