Lady Margaret's wound seems to move. When first hit, she presses her hand to her ribs, but when hiding it, she smooths her shawl carefully over her breast. Her breathing difficulties suggest the wound is indeed in the chest. Helen seems to be looking towards her bosom when she notices it, but there is no visible blood. The most plausible in-universe explanation is that the ball glanced off her stays and went up into the breast, but it's more likely poor continuity combined with Disney/Hays Code coyness over chest-wounds in women.

One of Disney's better historical pictures with excitement and plenty of action to satisfy moviegoers of all ages. Richard Tod stars in the title role as the rogue clan leader and is primarily a British production, as it was filmed mainly in Scotland and the film contains mostly British actors. Our hero leads raids and uprisings against British troops and the main thrust of the film is his efforts to get amnesty for his MacGregor clan in return for a truce. The main nut is that the English might be so inclined, but not for Rob Roy himself. Lots of battle and chase scenes throughout the picture keep the action moving.
This film is much better than the write-up given it in Maltin's. For some reason the reviewer thought very little of it and gave the film a bad review. As is often the case, you must judge for yourself, because in my opinion it is one of the better family-oriented action films from the Disney studio.
7/10 - The website no longer prints my star ratings.
