A story of the Easter Rebellion in Ireland in 1916
3 October 1998 | by (Socorro,New Mexico) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie over 35 years ago and the title remained in my memory. Some of the scenes are still so clear in my mind that I guess that the film accomplished a sort of immortality in me.
