IMAGE COMING SOON On a quiet Scottish farm the McGregor family (Leo Willis - father, Patsy O'Byrne - mother, Mary Kornman & Ena Gregory - daughters)  are sitting around the dinner table when the eldest son (Finlayson) arrives home.  When he realises the family are about to eat he rather theatrically stops them and tells them they have all been invited out instead.
Meanwhile at the McPherson house, the father (Jack Gavin) is about to eat his dinner but cannot stand the sound of his son (Mickey Daniels) playing a musical instrument any more so grabs him and shoves him in his chair just as his daughter walks in for dinner.
