In 1921 Dublin, the IRA battles the "Black & Tans," special British forces given to harsh measures. Irish-American medical student Kerry O'Shea hopes to stay aloof, but saving a wounded friend gets him outlawed, and inexorably drawn into the rebel organization...under his former professor Sean Lenihan, who has "shaken hands with the devil" and begun to think of fighting as an end in itself. Complications arise when Kerry falls for a beautiful English hostage, and the British offer a peace treaty that is not enough to satisfy Lenihan. Written by

After Kitty, on the beach, puts on her skirt and dances over to pick up her top, you can see she's topless as she rises and turns her back to the camera. However, as she's towels off her hair, you can see a strap over her shoulder, and when she turns in surprise she's definitely got a top on. See more »
Good M.Anderson film with an extraordinary performance of Cagney.
Dublin, 1921. A group of Special Forces British Army is sent to fight the IRA. An American medical student (Don Murray), of Irish origin, expected to stay out of the conflict, but from time to help an injured friend, not only is placed outside the law, but enters into the organization, whose leader is his former professor "Sean lenizan" (James Cagney).
This is the accurate title of this good film from director Michael Anderson, "Around the World in Eighty Days" 1956, "The Shoes of the Fisherman" 1968, "Logan's Run" 1976. This film is about the war for independence that ended in a truce in 1921, which led to the negotiation of the Anglo-Irish Treaty (1921) and the creation of the Irish Free State in 1922. A minority of combatants involved in the War of Independence refused to accept the treaty, so began the Irish Civil War, which lasted until mid-1923 and cost the lives of some leaders of the independence movement, especially Michael Collins and Rory O'Connor.
Director Anderson has a good cast of American and British actors (James Cagney, Don Murray, Cyril Cusack, Richard Harris, Michael Redgrave) to develop an intense plot that reflects the two sides within the IRA: Those who wanted to continue the fight to total independence of Ireland and those who were content to stay with the English Northern Ireland. As always we see another splendid performance of Cagney.
