Todd leads the Scots in revolt against England's stodgy King George I, while trying to gain the support of the Scottish secretary of state. When the latter is replaced by a spiteful louse who wants to undermine Todd's mission, Todd has to fight battles on both fronts. This heavy-handed

plot might have worked better had it been directed by Ken Annakin (ROBIN HOOD; THE SWORD AND THE ROSE) as was intended. Instead, at the request of J. Arthur Rank, Annakin was told he could no longer work for Disney and was replaced by French. This fiasco, as well as the picture's failure (though

it oddly received some good press and a Royal Command performance), caused Disney to split from RKO after 21 pictures and to return to the States for his live-action films. Far too confusing a film to recommend as a kids' picture.
