Owd Bob is a 1938 British drama film directed by Robert Stevenson. It stars Will Fyffe and John Loder.[1] The film was released as To the Victor in the United States.[2] It was based on the novel Owd Bob, previously filmed in 1924.[3]



It was an early role for Margaret Lockwood.[4]

Critical reception

The New York Times wrote, "it is an affectionate film, simple as a shepherd's life, and it is an admirable film, gaited to the remarkably adept performance of Will Fyffe as the likable old curmudgeon, McAdam. Mr. Fyffe's McAdam fits snugly into the mental dossier we have been compiling under the heading, "great performances." Such a treacherous old rascal, such an old reprobate, such a wicked-eyed old hypocrite, such a beloved old rip has not been seen hereabouts for many a moon. Such a terribly amusing old boy!...We found it a thoroughly delightful picture, true to its background and true to its author...In short, we enjoyed the picture for the simple and kindly offering it is, and we feel that you will, too—especially if you've a pup about the house."[5]
