Flame in the Heather

Flame in the Heather is a 1935 British historical drama film directed by Donovan Pedelty and starring Gwenllian Gill, Barry Clifton and Bruce Seton. It was made as a quota quickie at Elstree Studios. Much of the film was shot on location around Fort William.[1] It was fairly unusual as a low-budget quota film to be set in the past, as most films tended to have contemporary settings.[2]
