Joseph Rearden takes the fall for a robbery and winds up in the Scrubs. From there he escapes in the company of a convicted spy and is taken to a remote manor at an unknown location where he is kept isolated. He overpowers his guard and flees, but nothing is quite what it seems in this drama of intrigue as Rearden pursues his quarry from Ireland to Malta.

"The Mackintosh Man" was the last movie which John Huston
filmed in Ireland. Although The Dead
(1987) would have some Irish location work, the majority of it was filmed in a Californian studio, and the Dublin scenes were filmed by the second unit crew. Huston was sadly too ill to make the journey himself. See more

UK theatrical release was cut for violence to secure an AA rating with heavy edits to the beating of Reardon and shots of Gerda being kicked and hit with a gun. All later video and DVD releases are uncut and 15 rated. See more
