James Bridie on J. M. Barrie. The leading Scottish dramatist of today gives his views on a great Scottish dramatist of yesterday, with scenes from Barrie's plays. Produced by Denis Johnston
The choice of James Bridie as one to assess the qualities of that other great Scottish dramatist, James Barrie , is a happy one. Not that Bridie and Barrie could be said to have much in common beyond brilliant imagination-and even that quality is shared by both only in name. Barrie's dreamlike inventiveness was essentially and eternally romantic, whereas Bridie's felicity of mind is generally realistic. sometimes satirical, with here and there an approach to the level of farce. Bridie is accepted as the greatest living Scottish playwright of the day, and, being a Scotsman, can be relied upon to pass a judgment full of understanding upon the late Sir James.
