Script held at the Military Archives, Dublin. "At some stage in the 1980s the entire stock of film held at the National Library of Ireland was transferred to Radio Telefís Eireann (RTE).

When Brent Laboratories went into liquidation in 1986, the prints were depositied with the National Film and TV Archive at the British Film Institute, where they still remain" (Dermot ODonovan, Sacred Egoism: Neutral Eire on the Screen 1939-1945, National University of Ireland, 1996).

    SummaryDocumentary on the 'Battle of the Bogside. When the disaffected Catholic and Nationalist population in the Bogside area of Derry took to the streets to confront the Royal Ulster Constabulary, in the wake of a Protestant Apprentice Boys parade in the city the riots continued for almost 3 days and saw over 1,000 people injured. They were not a sudden unforeseen event as the pot had been simmering for some time before August. The 'Battle' ended when, in an unprecedented step, British troops were deployed into Derry. This decision by the British Government was to shape the future of Northern Ireland for over thirty years. Through the use of previously unseen archive footage as well as exclusive broadcast clips of the pirate 'Radio Free Derry', Battle Of The Bogside takes us behind the barricades, into Stormont and Westminster, to reveal the inside stories surrounding the Battle and the political response to it. Interviews with key figures from within the Bogside, the RUC and the Northern Ireland and British Governments recreate the drama as events unfold. Many of the contributors are speaking for the first time about those three days in August 1969. Features Nell McCafferty, Martin McGuinness, Bernadette McAliskey, Eamon McCann, volunteer nurse Attracta Bradley, Sir Kenneth Bloomfield, Derry Protestant Diane Greer, former British Home Secretary, Lord Callaghan, Derry Citizens Defence Association (1969), Frank Doran, 1969 Apprentice Boy, Gregory Campbell, Mary Nelis.

    Notes and commentsAmharc Eireann was a series of Irish language newsreel films commissioned by Gael Linn, to be shown in Irish cinemas from 1959 to 1964. The series began with 36 issues, each containing a single item, which were distributed to cinemas monthly between 1956 and 1959. Each of these 36 films featured an individual subject; e.g."Aerphort Na Sionainne" focuses on Shannon Airport. In 1959 a trial issue, or eagran, was produced, followed by 269 weekly issues, of approximately four minutes duration, usually containing four items. The final newsreel was released in August 1964. This edition: The Howth gun-running was organised by the Irish Volunteers (by Bulmer Hobson) in July 1914. The gun-running was modelled on that of the (Unionist) Ulster Volunteer Force to Larne in County Antrim in April 1914. The vessel used by the organisers to import the German weapons was the 'Asgard', the private yacht of the English-born novelist, revolutionary and politician Erskine Childers. Childers was active in the struggle for independence and took the anti-Treaty side in the split of 1921. He was active also in the Civil War, Director of Propaganda with the anti-Treatyites. He was executed in 1922 by the Free State Government after capture and conviction on a charge of unlawful posession of a pistol (said to have been given to him by Michael Collins). Unlike the Larne episode, which was clandestine and involved the importation of a massive amount of German arms and ammunition, the Howth operation was an open, provocative gesture. The amounts of arms and amunition impoRTEd were small in contrast with Larne. The Erskine Childers featured in this newsreel is the son of Erskine Childers, revolutionary. He became a leading figure in the Fianna Fail party, served as a Minister in a number of Fianna Fail administrations and became fourth President of Ireland. The item also features shots of Ernest Blythe, who was a Minister in the Free State government that ordered the execution of Erskine Childers senior. The 'Asgard' fell into disuse but was rescued and restored as a sail training vessel by the Irish government. This newsreel covers the ceremonial return of the yacht to Ireland (to Howth) after its restoration.

    Notes and commentsAmharc Eireann was a series of Irish language newsreel films commissioned by Gael Linn, to be shown in Irish cinemas from 1959 to 1964. The series began with 36 issues, each containing a single item, which were distributed to cinemas monthly between 1956 and 1959. Each of these 36 films featured an individual subject; e.g."Aerphort Na Sionainne" focuses on Shannon Airport. In 1959 a trial issue, or eagran, was produced, followed by 269 weekly issues, of approximately four minutes duration, usually containing four items. The final newsreel was released in August 1964. This Edition: The first item in this edition covers what was the highpoint of the summer social scene in Dublin, the week long Horse Show, held during August. The Aga Khan competition (a team-based international showjumping event) is the premier contest of the Show. The Aga Khan, a major player in the Irish bloodstock industry, bestowed the trophy to the RDS. The second item on the reel covers the shoot of the film A Terrible Beauty (aka The Night Fighters). The film is a British production and was shot in on location and at Ardmore Studios. The cast includes Robert Mitchum, Dan O Herlihy, Richard Harris, Cyril Cusack and Anne Heywood. It was released in 1960. A Terrible Beauty is adapted from the novel of the same name by J Arthur Roth. The title is taken from the closing line of the WB Yeats poem commemorating the 1916 Rising - Easter 1916. The story is set in 1940s (i.e. WWII) Northern Ireland. It is a love story set against (fictional) IRA activity in wartime Northerrn Irish. A German-trained activist has been parachuted into Northern Ireland. He engages local sympathisers, establishes an IRA unit in a rural locality (County Derry) and proceeds to organise guerilla actions against the police and the British Army. A local man recruited eventually turns against the campaign. This is partly the result of his relationship with a young woman who presses him to join her in emigrating to England to escape the poverty of life in Ireland. He informs on the IRA. He is captured by them but escapes. At the end of the film they both take the boat to England. It may be noted that there was no wartime IRA campaign in Northern Ireland. There were attempts by the IRA (in Southern Ireland) and the Nazis to work together on the old adage, England's difficulty is Ireland's opportunity.

    SummaryThis film shows the All Ireland finals of 1956. The finals of 1956 were delayed by a polio scare in Cork. In the minor match Tipperary played Kilkenny. The senior final was between the Munster and Leinster champions, Cork and Wexford. In this film there is an elaborate build up to the finals. The provincial championships had been dramatic. The Munster final saw Christy Ring in his element and effectively winning the game for Cork. Wexford also emerged from its province in a thriller final. The match attracted an enormous attendance. Sequences show the miles passing to Dublin, children playing hurling in a school yard, fans arriving at Dublin's Heuston Station, newspaper headlines from the coverage of the provincial deciders and a group of New Yorkers marching to the match - 'Flight of the Gaels'. In the homesteads the radio sets are tuned in for the live commentary. The contestants in the minor curtain raiser pose for the team photographs. Tipperary are quickly in their stride. The action sequences show a number of Tipperary moves and scores. Tipperary are the winners for the fourth time in five years. Before the senior final the President of Ireland Sean T O Kelly takes his seat. There is an exhibition of Irish dancing. The stadium scenes are intercut with the homestead scenes as people listen to the rario, a clock ticks away the time to the throw in. The teams parade, the Patron of the Association Dr Kinnane is escorted onto the filed to meet the teams. The players stand for the national anthem. After 30 seconds Wexford are a point ahead from Tim Flood. Padge Kehoe of Wexford increases the lead with a goal. Cork's maestro Christy Ring converts a 21 yard free with a point. Wexford stretch their lead through the first half but before half time points from Ring (two) and Eamonn Goulding reduce the Wexford lead. At half time Wexford lead Cork 1goal 6points (9points) to 5points. In the second half Wexford start well. There are two points for Wexford. Then Ring scores a goal and a point in quick succession. Wexford's lead is reduced to three points. A Wexford point is followed by a goal for Cork (Paddy Barry). This score levels the sides before Cork go in front. Wexford's Nicky Rackard evens the score with a point and then crashes in a goal - the deciding score of the match. Wexford 2goals 14points (20points) Cork 2goals 8points (14points). In the homestead the people rejoice. At the stadium the crowd invade the field in the traditional manner after the referee blows the final whistle. The voice over tells us 'One of the greatest if not the greatest finals of all time.'

    Notes and commentsThis film of the highlights of the All Ireland hurling final of 1956 is one of a series made by the National Film Institute (precursor to the Film Institute of Ireland) recording the highlights of the hurling and football finals. The series of films commenced in 1948 and ran through to 1968. The holding in the Irish Film Archive for the hurling finals is at present incomplete. There is no film of the 1948 finals. Also missing are the 1953 and 1954 finals. The film of the 1956 hurling finals breaks with the normal pattern of presentation. There is a story within a story. There is a significant amount of scene-setting, using newspaper headlines from the provincial finals. In the homestead, families tune in for the radio commentary. The 1956 senior final is considered a classic, even today. The pre-match build up was enormous - two thrilling provincial finals set high expectations. On the day the game lived up to all exprectations. The commentary pronounces "One of the greatest if not the greatest of all time." The 1956 finals were played on Sunday 23 September 1956 at Croke Park in Dublin. Wexford team: Art Foley, Bobbie Rackard, Nick O'Donnell, Mick Morrisey, Jim English (captain), Billie Rackard, Jim Morrisey, Seamus Hearne, Ned Wheelere, Padge Kehoe, Martin Codd, Tim Flood, Tom Ryan, Nickey Rackard, Tom Dixon.

    SummaryA drama documentary about the role and influence of the Christian Brothers in Ireland. Archival material, interviews and a dramatisation of a school passing from the control of the Brothers to lay teachers, are combined in this subjective view of an order which has shaped the lives of many Irishmen. The Christian Brothers are a Catholic teaching order founded by Edmund Ignatius Rice (1762-1844). Using actuality footage of key national events, including a Saint Patrick's Day parade and the 1932 Eucharistic Congress in Dublin; the negative memories of past pupils; and dramatised sequences, which focus on both children and the legacy of that education on those children as adults, the film examines the Christian Brothers and their influence on generations of Ireland people. In the drama sequences, the Christian brothers' world of male camaraderie, religious discipline, their traditional Gaelic historical view, their severe corporal-punishment approach to education, and their commitment to teaching in Ireland, are scrutinised. In one family, the mother's concerns at the treatment of her son lead to pressure on her husband to complain to the brothers about corporal punishment at the school. As the numbers attending the school decline, the principal discusses with both a lay teacher and with a property speculator the possibility of selling part of the school's land for development and of amalgamating the school with a local community school. Surplus land belonging to the brothers is handed over to the community school. The principal and the other brothers are concerned with change and loss of respect for them. As the school closes, most of the brothers leave. Only Brother Kilmartin remains to look after the deserted school, but, he, too, is eventually collected by another brother. (V).

    SummaryMOVIETONE CARD TITLE: The Queen's Guards. DESCRIPTION: Discipline typifies the Brigade of Guards. The Guards form a corps d'elite, which has fought on every front. One of the most bitter campaigns of World War Two was in North Africa. There the First Household Cavalry, as well as the Grenadier, Coldstream, Scots and Welsh Guards were in the forefront of the struggle. In the heroic actions for securing a bridgehead on the Continent, Guards were heavily engaged. This was the beginning of the end of Nazi occupation. In the great campaign in Western Europe, the First and Second Household Cavalry Regiments, the Coldstream, the Scots, the Irish and the Welsh Guards fought with the utmost gallantry. They won many honours to add to those won in battles long ago. The Guards won six VC's in World War Two. In Italy, General Lord Gort VC was present at the award of a VC to his son-in-law, then a major in the Grenadiers, now Viscount de L'Isle, Australia's new Governor General. In Malaya, the Guards fought in that post-war campaign against Communism. SHOTLIST: Key scene. GV guards marching. MCU the Queen salutes (on horseback). LS guards marching. Battle sequence.

    SummaryMOVIETONE CARD TITLE: Ulster Report. DESCRIPTION: The Orangemen marched, the troops stood by, the Catholics stayed away. Britain's biggest security operation ever staged may have kept Ulster calm. But whatever the cause, the Orange Day parades commemorating the Protestant Victory over the Catholics at the Battle of the Boyne, remained peaceful. The marches, by 100,000 members of the Orange Order, had been considered a potential flashpoint for renewed religious violence in the province. But in the event nothing happened. Maybe it was just a victory for common sense. SHOTLIST: GV through barbed wire of street decorated with flags. 2 SVs flags zoom out to banner OUR QUEEN. Women talk to soldiers behind barricade.

    SummaryThe Apprentice Boys Parade, a traditional Protestant march, was the peaceful prelude to days of violence. Stones were thrown from the Catholic Bogside area. Barricades went up. Within minutes the city was in the grip of the most savage and senseless rioting it has yet seen. At night, flames from the burning houses illuminated the scene of the conflict. Ulster's agonising experience may hold grave consequences for the future.

    SummaryIn a Presbyterian community in the North of Ireland at the turn of the century, Andrew Echlin and his sons Frank and Hamilton employ an elderly woman, Martha, and her daughter Sarah as domestic servants. One day, the three men and Sarah cross the Lough to visit the Pentlands in order to borrow a stud ram. On the return journey, the boat capsizes, and Andrew loosens his grip on the boat to allow the others to survive, including Sarah, whom he has begun to treat as a surrogate daughter. At the Echlins', Sarah is visited by a suitor, Fergus, who is shocked when he discovers that she didn't shout out his name when she was in danger. The local minister, Sorleyson, complains to Frank and Hamilton about their absence from church. The devout Martha is also upset. Her disapproval of Frank reaches a climax when he fails to collect her after mass as he has begun a relationship with Sarah. Martha calls Sarah a Jezebel, and tries to get her to leave the Echlins. She decides to stay, while Martha leaves. She gradually leams the ways of the Echlins who are expanding their land holdings. Following a trip to Belfast with Hamilton, she becomes romantically involved with him. While the brothers initially fight over her, they resolve to live together in harmony. Fergus visits the farmhouse one evening but leaves in disgust when he sees Sarah dancing with the two men to the accompaniment of a Jew's harp. Sarah becomes pregnant, but she refuses Sorleyson's demand that she marry one of the brothers. Hamilton tells Sorleyson that while he would be willing to marry her, she rejects him. After Martha dies without renewing contact with Sarah, her house is given by the Echlins to a Catholic woman, Bridie, despite Sarah's disapproval. Frank realises that Hamilton is closest in Sarah's affections and he decides to attend an Orange Day Parade. Despite being shunned by most of the locals, he meets a young woman, Molly, whom he walks home. On his way home, Frank is attacked and severely beaten, such that he ends up a cripple. Eighteen years later, Sarah's daughter, Martha, asks her mother to marry as she herself can- not marry without having an identifiable father. Remembering how n Andrew Echlin sacrificed himself, Sarah marries Hamilton, with Frank at her side as best man. (V). . ..

    SummaryBarney O'Hara, an Irish tenor and travelling carnival showman, his niece Pat, an aspiring opera singer, and their manager, Worthington Howard, entertain visiting Colonel Cameron and his daughter. Eve. They sing a peculiar version of 'Mother Machree' and 'Ants in his Pants', the title of which is the cue for a mischievous boy to put ants in Barney's pants, a prank which, to the amusement of the audience, causes Barney to hop around the stage. A boxer named 'The Killer' is accidentally knocked out by Barney and this leads to a feud between the two men. After Pat is disappointed at being unable to receive singing lessons from Signor Rudolpho, Barney, Pat and their manager take to the road again. While resting in the countryside, the travellers meet Eve, who invites them to her birthday party which Rudolpho is due to attend. At the party, Barney hesitantly renews his acquaintance with the colonel since he had accidentally hit him in the eye during his confrontation with 'The Killer'. The colonel is delighted to see Barney and seeks to encourage him in a boxing career. He later fights at a venue which the colonel owns. At the party. Pat sings and impresses Rudolpho with her ability. However, Pat damages her throat during the singing, and physician Sir James Hall diagnoses that she needs an operation which will cost 300 guineas. Barney sees a notice for a boxing competition with a prize of £500, but he doesn't realise that 'The Killer' is the opponent. Meeting 'The Killer' near the fight venue, Barney tries to run away, but 'The Killer' is knocked out by a ladder. Thinking that Barney has knocked out 'The Killer' a second time, interest is generated in the approaching contest. It is arranged that Barney practise for the fight at a ladies' gym where Kitty, an associate of 'The Killer's' manager, is the dance and exercise coach. Afraid that their prize money is in jeopardy, 'The Killer's' handlers arrange for Barney to be kidnapped during a military parade, an arrangement with which he is quite happy to co-operate. Eve's fiance and his friends discover the kidnappers' hideout and, much to Barney's displeasure, he is brought to the boxing arena in time for the fight. During the contest, Barney's manager tries to discomfort 'The Killer', but on the brink of defeat Barney is aroused when he hears detested bagpipers which drive him to anger and eventually to win the bout. Later, Pat leaves by aeroplane to study singing, while Barney and Kitty become engaged. (V).

    SummaryIn England, thirteen-year-old Finn Dove and his seven-year-old sister Derval leave home to get away from their brutal stepfather, Tobias Cromwell. They decide to go to Ireland where their grandmother, Mary O'Flaherty, lives in a cottage in a picturesque setting. When Cromwell discovers that the children are heirs to an annual sum of $10,000, he intensifies his efforts to get them back. The children's uncle, Hawk Dove, a master of disguise, also hears about the fortune and discovers that if the children die, or can't be found, the money goes to him. The children stowaway on a boat to Dublin where they are pursued by the police, but are helped by a rabbi. They take part in the Saint Patrick's Day parade. Disguised as an English police officer. Hawk Dove arrives with Cromwell in possession of a court order for the children and apparently to help the police with the investigation. The children get help from a bootlegger, Mickser, who had given the them a lift, but they run away when they see him calling the police. Later, the children hide on Mickser's truck as it heads towards Galway. They are mistaken for travellers' children and they get away again. They are helped by a group of travellers, but like Mickser, they are mainly interested in the reward for the children. Their grandmother appeals on television for them to come to her in Galway. Derval and Finn are also apparently helped by an English journalist, Heather Marblestone, who is Hawk Dove in disguise. Hawk Dove takes the children to a dangerous ruin and tries to kill them, but he falls into the sea himself. The children arrive at their grandmother's cottage. When the police try to take the children into care, the locals place themselves between the cottage and the police. Their grandmother also resists Cromwell's attempts to take the children back to England. Meanwhile disguised as a local, Hawk Dove appears at the house and takes the children to a bam where he plans to kill them, but at the last moment he abandons his efforts to harm them. The children tell him he can have the money as they have all they want with their grandmother. Hawk Dove tells Judge Liffy that the court order is bogus as he delivered it to Cromwell in one of his disguises. Cromwell accepts that the children can stay with their grandmother and Judge Liffy rules that they can stay with her. Hawk Dove lice escapes once more when he takes a policeman's uniform and bicycle.

    SummaryIn Belfast, as an Orange parade is in progress outside, a group of international civil-liberties campaigners: Ingrid Jessner, American lawyer Paul Sullivan, Henri and Moa, are interviewing ex-prisoners as they prepare a report on allegations of ill-treatment by British security forces in Northern Ireland. When Paul goes to the street he is covertly given a sound cassette by a man called Harris, who is being chased by a group of men. At a press conference at which the lawyers present their preliminary findings, Teresa Doyle, a reporter with Republican News, offers the investigators photographic evidence of the British govern- ment's shoot-to-kill policy, but she is told they don't want to be used for political ends. Paul arranges a meeting with Harris, but as he is being driven to the meeting in Dungannon by a republican, Frank Molloy, their car is fired at and both men are shot dead. The police announce that the car was evading a checkpoint and as a result it was fired on. A British CID Inspector, Kerrigan, is appointed head of the investigation as a foreigner has been shot. His work is treated with hostility by his RUC opposite number, Brodie, who resents the intrusion of an outsider into his area of operations. Kerrigan quickly discovers that the police report which states that Molly drove through a checkpoint is a fabrication. He is told by a Northern Ireland friend and ex-policeman. Jack Cunningham, that the three officers who shot Molloy and Paul are a covert group of Special Branch officers known as a Special Support Unit who are out of control. Ingrid tells Kerrigan that she found an empty cassette box amongst Paul's possessions and gives him a list of names she also found there. They visit Mrs Molloy, who tells them the house had been searched recently and that all the cassettes had been removed. At the Molloys', Ingrid sees a photograph of Harris, who is an ex-Special Branch officer. When Kerrigan interviews the officers who carried out the shooting, one of them admits that they were told by a senior officer, Frazer, to lie to the CID. They had also been told before they mounted the operation that the two men in the car were armed and to expect to be shot at. Through Teresa Doyle, Ingrid and Kerrigan arrange to meet Harris at a Republican drinking club. That night, British army and RUC men raid Teresa's flat and arrest her. The trail begins to leads to Brodie, who is impeding their enquiries. In exasperation, Kerrigan storms into Brodie's office. Brodie doesn't co-operate, citing the need to protect sources. Brodie refuses to give him any information about the tape and Kerrigan tells him that he believes army intelligence were involved. At the club, Harris tells Ingrid and Kerrigan that he worked in the 1970s for a secret disinformation operation jointly run by the CIA and MI5 which sought to characterise Prime Minister Harold Wilson as a KGB agent. When Alee Nevin, the closest political ally of the future Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, began to use the material in speeches which ultimately benefited Thatcher, he began to question the function of his group. As a result he was moved from his job. He says that a high level conspiracy of business, military and right wing political leaders existed, details of which are contained on the tape. Harris wants to have the information published and agrees to a further meeting in Dublin where he will produce the tape. Kerrigan is summoned to a meeting with Sir Robert Neil of MI5. At Neil's he meets Alee Nevin and outlines what he already knows. Nevin recalls that in the 1970s he was one of a group of people who got together to act to correct what they perceived as an unstable society. Kerrigan argues in favour of proceeding with the case and is told by Neil to prosecute those who carried out the shooting. He is also told not to continue any further with the case and is shown compromising photographs of himself and Ingrid at the club. Ingrid meets Harris in Dublin and is given the tape shortly before he is abducted. The tape contains conversations about the conspiracy which were taped at Nevin's home. Brodie arrives in Kerrigan's office to tell him that Harris was abducted and killed by the IRA. Ingrid meets Kerrigan just as he is about to return to England having decided that his career will not be sacrificed to the investigation. She tells him she believes it was British Intelligence who killed Harris. He declares that he does not want to be involved in what is a political rather than a police matter. Ingrid tells him she doesn't have the tape and leaves the airport. (V).
    NoteFR Rel May 1990 (Cannes Film Festival); IR Rel 2/3/1991 (Dublin Film Festival). Filmed on location in Ireland and England. This film opens on an overhead shot of Belfast and zooms in on an Orange parade going through the city. Superimposed on these images are two quotes: 'The entire ownership of Ireland, moral and material, up to the sun and down to the centre, is vested of right in the people of Ireland.' (James Fintan Lalor, 1807-49). 'Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, as much as my constituency is.' (Margaret Thatcher, 1981). The film ends with a third quote, this time from the former MI5 agent, Frank Miller: 'It is like layers of an onion, and the more you peel them away, the more you feel like crying. There are two laws running in this country: one for the security services and one for the rest of us.'

    SummaryIn New York's Bowery district in the 1890s saloon owner Chuck Connors, who is introduced with the song 'When Irish Eyes Are Smiling' on the soundtrack, finds that his rival, Steve Brody, has thrown a mushmelon at his window. Easy-going Steve had thrown the melon for a bet, but as they are about to fight a fire breaks out in Chinatown. Both men wager $100 over which of them can get their volunteer firemen to the fire first. When Steve arrives at the fire ahead of Chuck he finds that a friend of Chuck's, young Swipes McGurk, is sitting on a barrel over the fire hydrant so that Chuck can use it first. The rival firemen get into a fight, which turns into a collective brawl, with the result that the building is burnt down despite the pleas of the Chinese trapped inside. Steve is intent on revenge for Chuck's deception, but when two gangsters from Jersey City, Slick and Googy, offer to kill Chuck for $500, Steve beats them up. Chuck becomes the manager of heavyweight fighter Bloody Butch. Steve challenges him to a $500 fight with his own challenger, 'The Masked Marvel'. When 'The Masked Marvel' knocks out Bloody Butch, he is revealed as the legendary Irish-American boxer John L Sullivan. Chuck saves young Lucy Calhoun from Slick and Googy's pimping clutches, and then offers the penniless girl accommodation in the apartment he shares with Swipes. Swipes falls out with Chuck over Lucy and accepts Steve's offer to move in with him. Thinking that Lucy is Chuck's girlfriend, Steve tries to make love to her, but after an initial violent rebuff, the two fall in love. Steve tells her that his ambition is to run a saloon bigger than Chuck's. With two brewers willing to back his bid for a saloon if he can publicize his name, he decides to jump off Brooklyn Bridge. Chuck bets his saloon against a free burial that Steve won't survive the jump. Steve has a life-size dummy made up of him and arranges with Swipes to have it thrown off the bridge at the time of the jump. With a huge crowd gathered at the bridge, Steve discovers that the dummy is missing. Ignoring Swipes' pleas not to do it, Steve decides to go ahead with the jump. Meanwhile, Carrie Nation and her anti-drink followers have arrived at the saloon with hatchets to break up the place. Chuck sees Steve being carried in a victory parade after his successful jump and encourages the reformers to break up the saloon. Steve soon reopens the damaged saloon, while Chuck, now reduced in social status, enlists as a soldier in the American army to fight in the Spanish-American War. When Chuck returns to his apartment, he finds that Swipes has moved back in. Slick and Googy show Chuck the dummy and tell him Steve did not jump from the bridge. He goes to see Steve and demands his saloon back. Steve denies using the dummy and the two have a fight on a barge on the river. Chuck wins, but he is charged with assault and with intent to kill Steve. Steve refuses to testify against him, but in hospital Swipes has to separate the pair before another fight develops. Their friendship restored. Chuck challenges Steve to join him in the war in Cuba. Before they depart, Lucy kisses the two men, while to their delight they find that Swipes has also joined up. (V).
    NoteUSA Rel 4/10/1933 (New York); 13/10/1933 (general release). Loosely based on the jump from Brooklyn Bridge by Steve Brody on 23/7/1886 when he dropped 135 feet to the water where a friend with a boat picked him up, but he did not fight in the Spanish-American War. With the $200 prize won for the jump Brody opened a saloon, but John L Sullivan did not fight there, nor did Temperance leader Carrie Nation raid it. Chuck Connors, a guide through Chinatown, did not own a saloon. George Raft had been a driver for bootlegger Owney Madden in the 1920s and some of his hoodlum colleagues from that era played in the film's saloon-fight scene.

He goes to see his fiancee Eileen, a schoolteacher, who is trying to teach a pupil, Mickey, how to spell Ireland. Danny sings a song, 'That's How I Spell Ireland', on the theme. He imagines himself a traffic policeman, and shows a group of young women in another musical number how to obey traffic rules. Eileen's uncle. Pat O'Malley, has been a New York cop for twenty years. Following graduation from police school, Danny attends the New York St Patrick's Day parade, where a cop dances an Irish jig. After Danny is wrongfully arrested for bombing the parade, he asks at the police station for Pat O'Malley. Ten policemen step forward answering to that name. Eventually, Eileen's uncle appears, and he then tells him that Eileen came over on the same boat as himself. Re-united with Eileen, Danny sings another song. Pat brings him to the Associated Broadcasting Co radio station where he is given a singing contract. (V).

    SummaryIrishman Dan McFadden is building an apartment block called McFadden Flats in a working-class area of New York's East Side. Dan's daughter Molly goes to an exclusive school to learn etiquette after her boyfriend, Sandy MacTavish, convinces her of its merits. Dan runs short of money and is unable to finish the apartments until Sandy's father, Jock, a Scottish barber and a friend of Dan's, secretly guarantees Dan's bank loan, even though he is known as a mean man. Dan, however, falls out with Jock when he inadvertently cuts off a lock of Dan's hair and then wants to charge him for the haircut. Dan finishes the apartments with Jock's loan, while Molly spends the summer at the family estate of a school friend, Mary Ellen Hall, in Chicago. By now sophisticated, Molly falls in love with Mary Ellen's brother, Robert, and she suppresses her working-class background. Mr Hall, owner of a major construction company, proposes a business alliance with Dan when he opens an office in New York. Dan is elected president of the hod-carriers' trade union and leads the Labor Day Parade. Molly comes to New York as a guest of the Halls, who are viewing the parade with disdain from a hotel balcony. Dan sees Molly and blows her a kiss from the street, but she pretends not to know him, causing him upset. Later at the McFaddens', Dan chastises Molly and she apologises for her behaviour. She convinces her father to modernise their apartment before the Halls return to New York from a trip to Boston. The McFaddens issue invitations for the house-warming party to all their neighbours. On the night of the party, Mary Ellen calls and Dan invites the Halls. Robert appears and drunkenly accosts Molly after telling her his mother won't allow him to marry her. He then insults Dan. Sandy, who has been upset at Molly's association with the Halls, hits Robert for his assault on her. Dan and Mr Hall have been drinking and talking together and discover they are from the same background, having begun as bricklayers together. They initiate a competition of building a wall of books, while snobbish Mrs Hall leaves in disgust, describing the McFaddens as 'riffraff. By then, Dan thinks he has scuppered his opportunity to do business with Hall. Dan discovers that Jock guaranteed the loan, which is now overdue, to finish the apartments, and their friendship is restored, while Molly and Sandy kiss. Hall returns and congratulates Sandy for hitting Robert, and declares that he should have been done it years before. Hall tells Dan that their business deal is on.

    SummaryIn 1916, as Irish revolutionaries prepare for military action against British rule in Ireland, Nora Clitheroe is afraid that her husband. Jack, will be killed in the revolt, as happened to her own father years earlier. Nora is told that Jack has been promoted to commandant in the Irish Citizens' Army, but she doesn't tell him about it. When Jack receives a dispatch that he is to report to General Connolly at headquarters, he complains to Nora about her not telling him about his new responsibilities. He joins a torchlight parade of Citizens' Army members. During the subsequent rally, Nora talks with consumptive Mollser Gogan, a neighbour's daughter, about how men are doomed to fight and women to love and wait. After the rally, the leaders meet and agree the revolutionary statement of the declaration of Ireland as an independent republic. While Jack and Nora are having a picnic, he is called to a meeting at which he is told that they will occupy Dublin's General Post Office. While the fighting between the rebels and the British intensifies, looters raid unprotected shops. Jack volunteers to convey a message to the other commandants and meets Nora on the way. Despite her pleas, he refuses to go home with her. Before the revolt is ended, Mollser dies, while Nora is ill with concern for Jack. Retreating from the post office, the rebels take to the rooftops where they continue to fire at the soldiers. Pursued by soldiers. Jack escapes to the Gogans' flat, where he hides his rifle in Mollser's coffin. Reunited with Nora, Jack evades arrest, but he tells Nora that despite their defeat, the struggle for independence will continue. (V).
    Note8 reels. USA Rel 26/12/1936; 15/1/1937 (general release); IR Rel 31/7/1937. Spencer Tracy was originally considered for the role of Jack Clitheroe, but M-G-M refused to release him on the basis that the role was too weak. RKO also wanted to use Pat O'Brien in the film, but Warner Bros wouldn't release him. Maureen Delany was contracted to play in the film but did not travel to Hollywood. During post-production, and while John Ford was on vacation, executive producer Samuel Briskin ordered the reshooting by George Nicholls Jr of some scenes. 'The new scenes changed the relationship of the leads from husband and wife to boyfriend and girlfriend. Although none of the trade reviewers mention this change and probably saw only the previously shot version, prints with this alteration were circulated in the United States. When Ford heard about the changes, he tried unsuccessfully to have his name removed from the credits. According to an interview with Ford, English and Irish distributors refused to show the altered version and only screened the original. (AFI Catalog 1931-1940:1672). Though the film was made in the USA two representatives of the production company met with Colonel Hanna, the Chief Censor at the British Board of Film Censors, to explore the Censor's attitude to the project. This was an accepted pre-production censorship procedure in Britain at this time. Hanna wrote in an internal memorandum that 'the language is impossible from a film standard. It is very coarse, full of swearwords and most of the political speeches would be prohibitive from our point of view... The rebellion in Easter of 1916 evokes many sad and painful recollections and will always be highly controversial. I am strongly of the opinion that it is undesirable to rouse these feelings through the medium of the Cinema'. Colonel Hanna's response to this film and other films about the 1916-23 period in Ireland was clouded by the fact that he had served in the British Army in Ireland from 1918-21. While he discouraged such projects, he did not ban any of them. After the film's release in Britain, Monthly Film Bulletin (31/12/1936:220) observed that 'in transferring the play to the screen two problems have presented themselves: the censorship of O'Casey's virulent dialogue, and the difficulty of reproducing typical Dublin tenement speech so as to be understandable. The result is a toning down of high lights.' 'What a sorry job they made of it!', Sean O'Casey wrote in a letter to Lovat Dickson at publishers Macmillan, London, 11/5/1945. (Krause, ed. 1980:240). See also letter to Horace Reynolds 15/2/1937. (Krause, ed. 1975:648). 'Thanks mainly to Arthur Shields and the other Irish actors who took part in THE PLOUGH AND THE STARS, that film... is remarkable for its amazingly accurate pictures of Dublin slum life. In this respect alone it is the best film about Ireland that Hollywood has made up to the present... The settings are very accurate. One sees the directing and restraining hand of Arthur Shields in the excellent reconstruction of the Post Office [Shields had fought in the GPO during the 1916 Rising and was later interned] and the grim realism of the tenement scenes'. (IT 3/8/1937:4). 'Without the brilliant characterisation of Fluther Good (his old Abbey role) l by Barry Fitzgerald, THE PLOUGH AND THE STARS might have become merely mediocre... Mr Fitzgerald has by his efforts in this film placed himself among the foremost character-actors on the screen at the moment... Every incident, the atmosphere, the very lines of the piece lead one up to tragedy - but apparently, to "give the film general appeal", Mr Nichols has thrown in a happy ending so that those grimly tragic utterances about men fighting and women doing the weeping become mere mawky sentiment. There are many gripping and even thrilling moments and the piece never loses its high tension'. (DEM 3/8/1937:5). 'That a great play has... been perverted and crudely and sentimentally presented must be granted. As a film it is of little value and possesses no cinematic development... While the Irish players were generally good, the failure to capture the meaning of the play and the spirit of the rebellion was conspicuous. Sentimental hokum, bourgeois humanitarianism and Hollywood playing at conspiracy, set the keynote of the central theme. In other words, the picture is a cheap misrepresentation of one of the few great moments in Irish history. It was not necessary to twist the reality of the revolt... to emphasise the futility of war as seen through Nora Clithero's [sic] eyes. Expressionism is not hokum. Arthur Shields (Pearse ?) presented his role on the plane of a hypochondriacal peeve, and was ably assisted in his fanatical fervour by the devout, but indigestion suffering glances of his pathological friend, Moroni Olsen (Connolly ?). If these characters were seriously intended as representations of Pearse and Connolly, it is an interesting revelation of the mentality of our "Irish" players... John Ford... has done good work before with THE IRON HORSE (USA 1924) and UP THE RIVER (USA 1930), but it looks as if the Irish subject had better be left for someone else.' (Ireland Today, Sept 1937:69-70).

    SummaryIn the early part of World War Two after playing the President in a play, I'd Rather Be Right, the elderly George M Cohan is summoned to the White House. He enters the White House to meet President Franklin D Roosevelt and is brought to meet the President by an elderly black butler who tells him how much he enjoyed his singing and dancing years earlier. Sitting opposite the President, George is told that one thing for which he has always admired Irish-Americans is how they carry their love of country out in the open like a flag. Its a great quality he says. George tells him he has inherited that from his father who ran away from Massachusetts at the age of thirteen to join the Union army during the Civil War. In flashback, George tells how he was bom on Independence Day 1878. His father Jerry was performing at the time and rushed from the stage to the hospital where his mother Nellie had given birth to a boy. George and his younger sister Josie perform with their parents under the name. The Four Cohans. In 1891, he has a hit with 'Peck's Bad Boy', but George's parents are disturbed by his conceit. A group of tough boys beat up George as a response to his role, but he remains as cocky as ever. As a young man, he comes to specialise in character parts, even playing his own father's father in one play. Believing him to be the wise old man he played, a young girl, Mary, goes backstage to seek his advice about whether she should go on the stage. He encourages her to pursue a stage career and then surprises her by doing a lively dance and discarding his make-up. Eventually he marries her and has a hit with 'Mary's A Grand Old Name' which he wrote for her. George continues to write songs, but his attempts to sell them in New York's Tin Pan Alley are unsuccessful. Mary and he perform 'Harrigan', a song from a play, for Dietz & Goff. Librettist Sam Harris is no more successful in selling his material to the two men. Overhearing people at the boarding house talk about the difficulty George causes to the family troupe, George announces that his play is to be produced. Delighted, the rest of the family decide to go on tour. George meets Sam again in a cafe and together they convince patron of the arts Schwab to back a musical they are writing. The show. Little Johnny Jones, is a hit with the song 'The Yankee Doodle Boy', which is set during the English Derby, proving a success. Later George tries to convince Broadway star Fay Templeton to perform in one of his shows, but she dismisses him as a 'flag-waver' and a writer of novelty tunes. She also tells him that she is glad she lives in New Rochelle, forty-five minutes from Broadway, away from loud members of the profession such as himself. During the first act George writes 'Forty-Five Minutes from Broadway' and gives it to Fay, who likes it. When Fay likes another song, 'Mary's A Grand Old Name', she agrees to star in his next musical. However, George has promised that his wife will sing in his next musical and he is concerned at her response. When he returns home, he is surprised to find out that his wife already knows that Fay has the song and that she is not concerned about it. Fay makes hits of the two songs. It is the beginning of a series of hits with Sam Harris. George plays the lead in George Washington Jr in which he sings 'It's A Grand Old Flag'. Further hit shows follow. George becomes a solo performer when his parents leave the act to retire to a farm and his sister gets married. He writes a straight play 'Popularity' but it is poorly received. When he tries to enlist in the army during World War One he is told he is too old. He demonstrates his dancing prowess to the recruiting officer, but he is told that he should use his abilities in America. When he leaves the office, he hears a tune played by soldiers and uses a variation on it for his patriotic World War One song, 'Over There'. Later he performs the song with singer Nora Baynes for troops about to leave for France. His subsequent career (in all he wrote forty plays and more than 1,000 songs) continues his earlier success. Cohan and Harris dissolve their fifteen-year- old partnership as George decides to retire after his father's death. George and Mary retire to the farm following a world tour. He is called upon to play President Roosevelt in I'd Rather Be Right. The reason for Roosevelt inviting him to the White House is to confer the Congressional Medal of Honor on him for writing 'It's A Grand Old Rag' and 'Over There', the first member of the theatrical profession to receive the medal. After he leaves the White House, he joins in a passing parade of soldiers and civilians singing 'Over There'. (V).

    SummaryIn 1909 in Texas, Mike Guinan is trying to comer the market in potatoes. His daughter, Texas, is singing in the rodeo parade when she is reprimanded by her father. Later, when she attends the rodeo, she rides a bucking broncho under the pseudonym Joe Duffy of the 'Hying Gs', the Guinans' ranch. When she is thrown from the horse, she loudly proclaims that the saddle was deliberately loosened and demands a second chance. Half-Irish, half-Spanish gambler Bill Kilgannon, who won the rodeo in a card game two days earlier, bets on Texas and wins $1,500 on her success. He later offers her a job in the rodeo. Mike tells his family that he will control all the potatoes in the ground from the Panhandle to the Rio Grande. That night, low temperatures destroy the crop and ruin the family whose livery stables are guaranteed against the borrowed money. Texas joins the rodeo and becomes its star. When she saves a child from being trampled during the rodeo, Kilgannon invites her out, but she tells him that the child-saving was a stunt with an adult midget. At the restaurant, newspaperman Tim Callahan threatens to expose the stunt unless he is given a job as press agent with the show. Though she is in love with Kilgannon, Texas accepts attention from Callahan. Kilgannon explains to Cherokee Jim that the reason he cannot become involved with Texas is that he is married, even though his wife is in a sanatorium. Texas tells Kilgannon that she loves him. He rebuffs her by telling her he is married, but he does not explain about his wife's illness. Texas leaves the show and goes to New York with Callahan whom she marries. She becomes a Broadway star while Callahan remains a lowly-paid newspaperman. When he asks her whether she loves him, she remains silent on the matter. Before he leaves, Callahan advises her to go to Kilgannon who is making films in California. Cherokee Jim, now a film director in California, visits the show and also encourages Texas to go to see Kilgannon. He tells her about Kilgannon's wife and she is relieved at finding out the reason for his rebuff to her. When her attempt to get fired from the vaudeville show proves unsuccessful she tells impresario Ballinger that she is quitting. He replies that she will never work on Broadway again. In California, Texas meets Kilgannon and tells him she will wait for him until after his wife's death. She makes moving pictures with Cherokee Jim and her career as a screen actress is developing when one of her father's schemes comes to the attention of the authorities. Horace Biggs of the district attorney's office arrives with a subpoena for the appearance of Kilgannon, Mike and Texas as the directors of the company to answer charges about the issuing of false share certificates for investment in movie theatres. To protect Texas and Mike, Kilgannon demands they sign over their interest in the company to him. Texas is upset as she has arrived to renew her relationship with Kilgannon now that Cherokee Jim has told her Kilgannon's wife has died. As Kilgannon is leaving for Canada, he is stopped by Joe Cadden, who is working a Prohibition racket in New York and asks him to join his outfit. Texas returns to New York with her family. Callahan tells her that Ballinger has banned her from Broadway. Texas joins with restaurateur Nick the Greek to host a party for Lauella Parsons at which she announces they are to pay $25 each for dinner. When they get over the shock of the demand, she laughs at them with the slogan 'Hello, Suckers!'. Callahan names her 'Incendiary Blonde' and the event is repeated with Texas becoming the club's singer and star attraction. Nick is intimidated into selling the club to Joe Cadden. Texas demands $3,000 a week from him and to have the place named after her. As she is leaving, Kilgannon arrives and is revealed as Cadden's partner. Texas is hostile to him and walks out. Italian gangsters, the Vitori brothers, arrive at the club and Cadden throws them out, telling them to return to their own side of town. Mike tries to convince Texas to ease up on Kilgannon. Just then, a gunman fires on them. When it appears that he is dying, Mike tells Texas that Kilgannon had protected her by forcing her to sign over her share in the film company. In fact, Mike has only been covered with ketchup which was spilt during the shooting. Texas and Kilgannon are reconciled. The Vitori brothers arrive and tell Kilgannon and Texas that Cadden is dead and demand a partnership in the club. Texas and Kilgannon reluctantly accept the demand. Texas goes to see her doctor and is told she has two years to live. On New Year's Eve, the Vitori brothers' gang arrive at the club. After Callahan calls the police, Texas tries to delay Kilgannon from going upstairs where the Vitoris are waiting in ambush for him. A shoot-out follows in which Kilgannon is wounded and the Vitori brothers are killed. After she leaves Kilgannon in the hospital she remembers that she has less than two years to live while Kilgannon will be in prison for five years. (V).
    NoteAccording to MPG the screenplay for this film was based on Life of Texas Guinan by Thomas and W D Guinan. Glenda Farrell playing 'Missouri Martin' in LADY FOR A DAY (USA 1933) is based on Texas Guinan. Barbara Nichols played Texas Guinan' in THE GEORGE RAFT STORY (USA 1961), see below. For a list of the films in which Texas Guinan appears, see Berliner 1993: 215-16.

    SummaryTerry Noonan returns to his old neighbourhood of New York's Hell's Kitchen after being away for twelve years. He meets his friend Jackie Flannery and Jackie's sister, Kathleen, with whom he was in love as a youth. She has moved uptown away from the criminal world of her family. Jackie is a member of his brother, Frankie's, Irish gang. Terry joins the gang and takes part in extortion and fire-bombing action. He also resumes his relationship with Kathleen, who works in an hotel. Terry discovers that another friend, Stevie, is in debt to local Italian gangsters. Terry and Jackie humiliate the Italians who are sent to retrieve Stevie's debt. However, Don Cavello, the Italian mob's boss, who is negotiating an alliance with Frankie, is upset. To placate Cavello, Frankie kills Stevie. Believing that the Italians are responsible for Stevie's death, Jackie threatens to take revenge on them, but Frankie stops him. Terry is revealed as an undercover cop from Boston who has been sent to stop the alliance forming between the Irish and Italian gangsters. Terry discovers that Frankie ordered Stevie's death, but Jackie will not believe him. Instead, Jackie decides to kill Cavello and the other Italian mobsters. Afraid for the potentially lucrative alliance, Frankie meets a more senior Italian boss, Borelli, as he weighs up whether to attack the Italians or to placate them. Borelli demands that Frankie execute his brother. When Terry fails to provide protection during a bogus pick-up that night, Jackie is killed by Frankie. At Jackie's funeral, Kathleen is cool towards Terry. He gives his police badge to a shocked Frankie. Later, while the St Patrick's Day parade is in progress, Terry goes to a bar where he kills Frankie and his men in a shoot-out and is wounded himself. (V).

    SummaryDocumentary charting the history and evolution of Irish Republicanism. The programme focuses on the guerilla border campaigns from1956 to 1962 (which ended due to lack of public support and a clampdown on the terrorists by Eamon De Valera and Minister Charles J. Haughey) to the Civil Rights Movement in the late 60s and the beginnings of a more ruthless and all-encompassing war in Northern Ireland. The documentary traces the activities of the IRA in chronological structure: the beginnings of a paramilitary war against the historic partition of the borders between the republic and British-occupied Northern Ireland in the mid 50s, political attempts at breaking down partition, unsuccessful attempts at fundraising in the US, the re-emergence of the now illegal IRA, the volunteers underestimation of the innate opposition of Unionists to Dublin rule, and the struggle against the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) and the B Specials; the plight of Catholics in the North; the economic impoverishment of the Republic and the influence of the Wolfe Tone commemorations in 1962 in re-charging republicanism fronted by nationalists Tony Magan, Tomas MacCurtain and Paddy McLogan and the IRA Army Council who advocated a United Ireland through physical force; the Army Council’s assimilation of Sinn Fein, the establishment of the United Irishmen propaganda newspaper, and the beginnings of a military campaign aimed exclusively at the North of Ireland; the raid on and seizing of weapons from Gough British Army Military Barracks in Armagh in 1952; the issuing of a key IRA statement at the annual Republican parade at Bodenstown, Republic of Ireland, in 1954, and the subsequent military training of the volunteers (to which the Garda Siochana in the republic turned a blind eye); the failed raid on Omagh Barracks (based on information provided by Republican intelligence officer Sean Garland) in 1954 and the subsequent trail for treason against the Queen of eight volunteers which resulted in a surge in IRA support; the unsuccessful raid on Arbourfield British Army Barracks at Berkshire, England, in August 1955, headed by Ruairí Ó Bradaigh, which lead to several life sentences being handed out to volunteers and a further increase in public support in the Republic; the IRA’s establishment of Operation Harvest (under Seán Cronin) in Dec 1956 - in which flying columns infiltrate and attack targets in Northern Ireland - a successful campaign which nonetheless lead to the British government’s imposition of internment policies in the province; the aborted attack in Dec 1956 by flying columns on the Derrylin RUC Barracks in which RUC constable John Scally died, and Unionist reaction; a further unsuccessful attack on the RUC Barracks at Brookborough, Northern Ireland, in January 1957, in which volunteers Seán South and Fergal O’Hanlon, died – and the consequent reaction of the governments’ north and south by sealing the border and ordering the arrest of all known republicans; the effect of the funeral of Seán South in Limerick, January 1957, in consolidating public support for the nationalists and the IRA; the collapse in 1957 of the southern government and the subsequent success of Sinn Fein in the general election; the coming to political power of Eamon de Valera who would suppress the IRA by imposing interment and arrests and imprisonment in the Curragh Internment Camp; the adoption of a new Army Council by the IRA, renewed campaigns despite public aversion to violence, and the avoidance of attacks on the RUC for fear of pogroms; the death of several IRA volunteers while preparing a mine at a safe house in Edentubber, Crossmaglen, in November 1957, leading to further public disenchantment; Minister for Justice, Charles Haughey’s introduction, in November, 1961, of military courts to try volunteers; and the IRA Army Council’s statement, in February 1962, of a stand-down and dissolution of military activities. The documentary ends with an assessment by eyewitnesses of the effects of the campaigns on subsequent historical events in Northern and Southern Ireland. Interviewees: Tony Meade, Ruairí Ó Brádaigh, labhrás Ó Donghaile, Breandán Ó Raghallaigh, Tomas MacCurtain (archive), Brian Faulkner (archive), Eamonn Ó Buadhigh, Robert Kehoe, Patrick O’Regan, Robert Briscoe TD (archive), and Eamon De Valera (archive). The documentary makes extensive use of archive footage, amateur propaganda footage, newsreels, photographs, eyewitness accounts, and reconstructions of key events.
