Sergeant Howie (Edward Woodward) arrives on the small Scottish island of Summerisle to investigate the report of a missing child. A conservative Christian, the policeman observes the residents' frivolous sexual displays and strange pagan rituals, particularly the temptations of Willow (Britt Ekland), daughter of the island magistrate, Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee). The more Sergeant Howie learns about the islanders' strange practices, the closer he gets to tracking down the missing child.
THE WICKER MAN: THE FINAL CUT origin is similar to a number of Final Cut versions in the program, the director Robin Hardy was forced to make cuts prior to the initial release that compromised his vision of the film, over time a number of different “director’s cut” versions have been cobbled together. It wasn’t until the films 40th anniversary when the distributor launched an extensive search and was able to track down the original 1973 version of the film true to Robin Hardy’s vision, this version was put together by the director himself and crucially reinstates all the important extra scenes that he intended to include and restores the original timeline and story structure for a more coherent narrative.
