Bonnie Prince Charlie is a 1923 British silent historical film directed by Charles Calvert and starring Ivor Novello, Gladys Cooper and Hugh Miller. It is now considered a lost film.
The film depicts the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 and its aftermath when the Jacobite pretender Charles Edward Stuart evaded capture by the forces loyal to the Hanoverians, and escaped to the Continental Europe with the help of Flora MacDonald.
While filming on location in the Scottish Highlands, Novello grew so fond of his kilt that he continued to wear it even when he was off set.
