Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The great Scots entertainer Sir Harry Lauder made but a handful of movie appearances. One of the best of these was the 1927 British feature Huntingtower. Lauder plays a Scottish grocer who is much beloved by the kids in his neighborhood. When a visiting Russian prince is endangered by a Red assassin, the kids can't get the authorities to help. But Lauder believes the children, and uses his Scots wiles to rescue the prince and subdue the killer. Huntingtower is based on a novel by John Buchan, of 39 Steps fame.
