NEWS… More Bonnie Bloggers Join the No True Scotsman Blogathon



What Scottish delights will today’s bloggers unearth?


The blogging world uncovers a few more questionable Scottish accents in film and television.



Yesterday, our not so wee gathering brought seven bloggers to the No True Scotsman Blogathon and these included yours truly. With bonus additions to those accents, we’ve had plots with Scotland as Hollywood knows it added to these films and TV. There have been appearances of kilt-wearing, appearances of Nessie (the Loch Ness Monster), Highland Dancing and the Highland Games.

Having read these posts, it’s been interesting to see those scriptwriters from Hollywood and beyond’s idea of Scotland as compared to the real McCoy… but all these entries are wonderfully tributed by some fabulous writers. So I’d recommend you scoot over to Day 1 HERE... and check these out.

So far, there have been both good and bad accents.. and the posts include some more memorable ones. Today, the shindig continues with more wonderful “Scottish” accents… and I can guarantee there are some interesting attempts at these accents added by the characters and the films reviewed by our international bloggers.

Now enough of my gittering, and here in no particular order are those entries…


Critica Retro brings the first of today’s posts with The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969) which has English Maggie Smith as Jean Brodie…


The Stop Button adds the Scottish play as filmed in Macbeth (1948) with American Orson Welles as Macbeth…


Films From Beyond the Time Barrier reviews I Bury the Living (1958) with Austrian Theodore Bikel as Andy McKee…


Pfeiffer Pfilms and Meg Movies brings us his (imagined) movie The Witch of Weehawken (1992) with his leading ladies starring Kathy Bates as the Scottish, Annie Reed…


Hamlette’s Soliloquy shares her view on Kidnapped (1959) with American James MacArthur and Englishman Peter Finch as Scots…


Spirochaete Trail reviews Sport Goofy in Soccermania (1987) with American Will Ryan as Scrooge McDuck…


And tune in tomorrow for the final day, and CLICK HERE for Day 1’s sterling “Scots”…

  1. My son is a Disney-obsessed developmentally delayed fellow on the Autism spectrum, and “we” have never heard of this short. I guess there are limits to anyone’s fandom. He also has when I call the accent gene and does more than credible Goofy, Scrooge McDuck, etc. It is hysterical when we’re out in public and he chooses to respond in whatever character has taken over his brain.

    Nonetheless, I am very curious about seeing this missing link myself. The theme to DuckTales is now running through my head and will be doing so for at least a couple of days. Thanks for a fascinating read and all the information with which I will either bore or fascinate my daughter. She doesn’t have any diagnosis like her brother, but she is a professional animator so – yea, crazy.
