This Other Eden

Muriel Box (1959)

U Certificate


Our Score
A curious film for Leslie Phillips to find himself in, this is an overwrought tale about the emotions that erupt when the statue of a long-dead IRA hero is blown up in the square of a sleepy Irish village. Phillips is fine as the son of the Black and Tan who shot the gunman, and who is blamed for the explosion. He is adequately supported by Audrey Dalton as his lover and Norman Rodway as the terrorist's seminarian son, but the film lacks the power of such Hollywood lynch dramas as Fritz Lang's Fury or William A Wellman's The Ox-Bow Incident.
