Trivia

The school scenes were filmed in Blackrock College, Dublin, Kieron J. Walsh's old school. Walsh was not permitted to use the actual school crest in the film, so the dove and lion were flipped in their positions and the real motto, "Fides et robur" (Faith and Strength), was replaced by "C'era una volta il Ociente" (Once Upon a Time In The West).

Quotes

[first lines]
Brendan: [as narrator] Yes, this is Sunset Boulevard. Sunset Boulevard, Dublin, Ireland. You see the body of a young man lying in a pool. Nobody important, just a schoolteacher with a couple of Bs and Cs to his credit. The poor dope. He always wanted a pool. Well, in the end he got himself a pool, only the price turned out to be a little high. Let's go back about six months and find the day it all started.

Why I liked "When Brendan Met Trudy"
3 April 2009 | by amvpavSee all my reviews

This movie thrilled me because of its soundtrack: I am wondering how many viewers realize that all the singing heard in this film is actually the recording of the fabulous voice of the legendary Irish tenor of yesteryear - John Count McCormack? It's interesting to me that none of the previously posted comments refer to that fact. The actors are fresh and modern in their roles, although they are completely new to me as an American viewer. In connection with McCormack, a segment of this film evidently shows an excerpt of McCormack singing "Panis Angelicus" in Dublin's Phoenix Park during the 1932 Papal Eucharistic Conference. This is depicted on a computer screen. I would very much appreciate it if anyone could refer me to the detail of that film, i.e., how to obtain a copy. Information on hand indicates that British Pathe filmed the event.
