The Informer(1935) is a movie that made people aware of a director named John Ford. Became a big name in Hollywood for the years after the movie. Gives a detailed look at the early history of the IRA. The Informer(1935) deals with a man who informs on his best friend and feels guilty afterwards. Victor Mclaglen as Gypo Nolan gives a performance of great human depth. The themes of betrayal and redemption are present through the entire film. Of all John Ford's films this is his most religious themed film. The Informer(1935) ends in the style of an An American Gangster Film.
