Title: Finding Bob McArthur

Year of production: 2007

Genre: Fictional Documentary

Running time: 75 minutes

Director: Jim Hickey

Producer: Robin Mitchell

A fictional documentary tracing the life of Scottish director Bob McArthur, whose career in Hollywood lasted until the early 1970s. His career was effectively ended when his South American film was halted by its producer. He returned to Scotland to research and develop a film project about Robert Louis Stevenson. Following in the author's footsteps, McArthur disappeared for years in the South Seas.

Now McArthur is now being honoured in Scotland with a Lifetime Achievement award. As the award ceremony approaches, his story is uncovered through archive material and the memories and opinions of those who have known him.

The film stars Bob Edwards, Maureen Beattie, John Stahl and Alan Bell. It was screened at the 2007 Glasgow Film Festival.
