Plot Summary

Johnny McQueen, leader of a clandestine Irish organization, has been hiding in the house of Kathleen and her mother, planning a hold-up that will provide his group with the funds needed to continue its activities. During the hold-up, things go sour: Johnny is wounded, cannot make it back to the hideout, and disappears in the back-alleys of Belfast. Immediately, a large-scale man-hunt is launched, and the city is tightly covered by the constabulary, whose chief is intent on capturing Johnny and the other members of the gang. Kathleen sets out in search of Johnny. Written by Eduardo Casais

Trivia James Mason called this his best performance of his career, and his favourite Carol Reed film. See more »
Goofs When Rosie states that she read in a newspaper that Johnny had been shot before he got away, the time on her clock is about 7:15 p.m. The mill robbery happened at the stroke of 5:00 p.m. Nearly all of the businesses, including new stands, seen during the interim were closed (no lights on in the dark). No newsboys were seen on the street. Two hours seems insufficient time for a reporter to gather the facts, get back to the newspaper office, write the story, have it typeset and printed and distributed and read, especially at dinnertime.

It is not concerned with the struggle between the law and an illegal organisation, but only with the conflict in the hearts of the people when they become unexpectedly involved. See more »
