In 1921, Kerry O'Shea (Don Murray), an American medical student living in Ireland, learns that his esteemed professor, Sean Lenihan (James Cagney), is also a leader in Ireland's rebel army. Even though Kerry's father and roommate have both been killed by British troops, he refuses to join the Irish rebellion. However, after Kerry is unjustly imprisoned and tortured by the British "Black and Tans" special forces, he fully commits himself to the cause of Irish freedom.

  • Mar 17, 2012
    Great acting by Cagney complimented with solid work from everyone else makes this compelling viewing. Besides showing how impassioned furor can go too far and twist good men's souls this is a tense study of a group of freedom fighters. Good use of locations and atmospheric filming add to the tone of this and make it well worth catching. One of Cagney's last films before his twenty year retirement.
