    A River Runs Through It

    I was watching "A River Runs Through It" the other day, and while I've seen the movie a dozen times I noted something that I had either forgotten on simply failed to notice. Towards the end of the church picnic scene there is a piper playing and in full THCD, (if I have that right.) I have been to Montana several times but never thought about there being a Scottish connection. Curious, I came upon several articles on line, including this one:

    So, not a movie with "Celtic Roots" but then again the lead characters are Presbyterians.

    Cheers,

    David

    The movie is based on the book of the same name by Norman Maclean, which is largely autobiographical. Another great Montana author with Scottish roots is the late Ivan Doig.
