The Village Squire
The Village Squire is a 1935 British comedy film directed by Reginald Denham and starring David Horne, Leslie Perrins, Moira Lynd and Vivien Leigh making her screen debut. It is based on Arthur Jarvis Black's play. The screenplay concerns a village's amateur production of MacBeth that is aided by the arrival of a Hollywood star. This provokes the fierce resistance of the village squire who hates films. The film was a quota quickie, produced at Elstree Studios for Paramount to help them meet their yearly quota set down by the British government.
