Peter and Ruby (1973) [Short]

UK (MIFF 1974 )
Director: Colin Gregg

This is a film portrait in which the words are mostly Peter Hannaford's, an eighty-year-old Dartmoor smallholder and cattle doctor, living with his first cousin, Ruby French. The last of his kind, he talks of toads and tractors, mixing commonsense with superstition, showing how Dartmoor and its people have shaped his life.
