Juno and the Paycock

About

Early British Hitchcock which has the future master of suspense trying to make a living with this faithful adaptation of O'Casey's classic play, chronicling the ups and downs of an Irish family in the Dublin of the 1920s. Most of it is a straight filming of the play - and was acknowledged as such by Hitchcock - even though handsomely photographed and acted. When the action opens up towards the end, Hitch gets a chance to flex his cinematic muscle with a predictably dramatic ending.
