Following the previous two posts - Sentimental Journey and A Postman's Lot - this post looks at a third short film made by the late Ernest Mackie. Another collection of postie-related antics, 'Carry on Postman' can be viewed here.
If you are trying to work out where in Largo is featured from 1:39 into the film, don't even try.....it's 7 Bowling Green Street in Methil (with Denbeath Miners' Welfare Institute at the street end). However, the vast majority of the filming takes place in Lower Largo with post mistress Elizabeth Grassick and postmen Wattie Blyth, Edward Stephen, and Ernest Mackie himself, in the lead roles.
Does anyone recall any Ernest Mackie films other than these three? Do you have a copy of them? Anyone willing to assist with finding, converting to digital and sharing more of these gems, please do get in touch.
