This multi award winning classic film tells the tale of Oil billionaire Happer (Bert Lancaster), who sends employee Mac (Peter Reiger) to a remote Scottish village to secure the property rights for an oil refinery they want to build. Mac soon teams up with local boy Danny and starts the negotiations, and the locals, who are keen to get their hands on the ‘Silver Dollar’, can’t believe their luck. However a local hermit and beach scavenger, Ben Knox, (Fulton Mackay) owns the very beach that is crucial to the plan. Happer can’t negotiate this one by phone or fax, and soon it’s time to meet on Ben’s terms.
Featuring an appearance of An Lanntair’s Head of Visual Arts and Literature, Roddy Murray!
