Who are the Scots?
Donald Crisp (1880 - 1974) Born in Aberfeldy, emmigrated to the U.S. in 1906. Despite having acted in more than 400 holywood films, being an accomplished director and taking a leading role in film financing, Crisp became known as Scotland's forgotten actor. Roles include 'Birth of a Nation', 'Intolerance', 'National Velvet', starring with Elizabeth Taylor, and 'How Green is my Valley' for which he was awarded an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor in 1941.
