Storyline

Much to the consternation of the local townsfolk, the very rich Copper John Brodrick begins to develop a copper mine on Hungry Hill. He imports Cornish workers hoping to eventually entice the locals into working for him. His son, known as Greyhound John, isn't so sure anything will endear them to the locals. The opposition to the Brodricks is lead by the Donovan family and he gives them fair warning to stay off the property. When one of the protesters is killed while trying to help himself to some of the copper, the townspeople attack the facilities resulting in a great many more deaths - including one of Brodrick's sons, Henry - when the gunpowder store explodes. It marks the true beginning of a feud that will last for decades. Brodrick rebuilds his facilities and Greyhound John returns from London where he is studying the law after his sister tells him Fanny Rosa has also returned. A cave-in at the mine kills another member of the Donovan family but the younger John contracts ... Written by garykmcd

costume drama
31 August 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was recently shown as part of the BBCs season of British films.It is a costume drama which seemed to be a staple diet of cinema going in the 1940s.the cast is fairly distinguished including Margaaret Lockwood,Dennis Price,Michael Dennison and Dermot Walsh.They seem to be playing the type of parts which had become their métier during this period.The problem is that there is no dynamism either about the acting or writing to give the film that spark.Perhaps it needed a mean and moody Mason to bring the film to life.I have to say that at times i found the film to be rather dull and tepid.There were lots of sequences to do with mines but this was already a bit of a cliché by the time this film was released.
