DVD Review - Shake Hands with the Devil (1959)

11 June 2012 4:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shake Hands with the Devil, 1959.

Directed by Michael Anderson.

Starring James Cagney, Don Murray, Dana Wynter, Glynis Johns and Michael Redgrave.


In 1920s Dublin, a young medical student is sucked into the world of the Ira and becomes embroiled in a series of plots against the occupying British forces.

No first sentence tricks this time. Let’s go straight in there. It’s Northern Ireland in 1921, and those infamous Troubles with a capital T are in full swing. Faced with guerrilla tactics and a relentless resolve from the Irish Republican Army, the British Government have sent in the contemptible Black and Tans, a paramilitary outfit with express orders to shoot anyone even remotely suspicious-looking on sight. They function as an occupying force, as a catch-all term for British oppression in Ireland, and as the nameless, faceless target practice villains in this story.

Easy there now. Shake Hands with the Devil »
