Heart-warming tale about Devon farming folk and the efforts of good neighbours to save a squire's farm from the bailiffs
Comedy 1928 87 mins
Director: Norman Walker
This beautifully shot, heart-warming tale of Devon farming folk is taken from the Eden Phillpotts novel about an impecunious squire and the efforts made by family and good neighbours to save his farm. The beastly bailiff may be on the doorstep and the auctioneer hovering, but the ghost of an ancestor and his buried treasure may be the answer to everyone's prayers. Every image shimmers in this ravishing adaptation, and the splendid Devon countryside - no rain allowed - has never looked better.
