my fathers last film
13 October 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

this film means a lot to me. harry brogan who plays the lead is my father and i worked as his stand in on the film. i have never seen the full film and have searched the net for it. so if anybody has seen it or has a copy or knows where i might be able to get a copy, i would be forever grateful. the film was shot in black and white, made in Dublin in 1960. it was shown at the cork film festival 1960 and some of the comments then it was too dark in my opinion the director don Chaffey was before his time as i had seen a lot of the rushes, and disagree. so if anybody can help me please please do not hesitate to contact me. my father died in 1972 and he never saw the film. there maybe also someplace that i could download the film from . this is also the only film of my father that i don't have, so even just to complete the full collection some30 films in all.so hopefully some of your readers may pick up on this and end a search that has taken me all over the net and the world. the film is only about an hour long but there is a death scene that any budding actor or director should see. the director don Chaffey did the scene in one take and it was several seconds after the scene had finished that he was able to say cut and print and then went up to the bed to my father with tears in his eyes. having worked on the film there are some other very subtle moves in the film, but for obvious reasons would not like to divulge them (trade secrets) the horse used in the film (ferdia) was just in case any body is worried was old but i can without fear of contradiction say that the horse was treated like the star he was. there have been a lot of films shot in ireland but i can quie honestly say that this film had the most effect on me. the one scene i will always remember, never forget is the death scene, as some 12 years later i had to live through the same scene in real life as my father breathed his last.
