    Victor McLaglen was beyond amazing as Gypo Nolan, strong-as a bull but unfortunately no smarter. If you want to know about Ireland at the turn of the century portrayed in the dark atmospheric shadows only John Ford could conjure up, watch this gem! Even with (by our current standards) the mushy heavenly choir at the end, this is one of the all-time classics. A must!!
