Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

If Irish eyes are still smiling at the end of this melodramatic tarradiddle, it'll have more to do with the black stuff than the quality of John F Argyle's picture. A few sentimental songs enliven the opening segment, as Dinah Sheridan bids farewell to the stage to marry her singing partner's cousin. But no sooner have she and John Bentley settled in Donegal than he's forced to take drastic steps to prevent the tempestuous Tamara Desni from raking up an old affair. It was worth attempting the change of scenery, but you can still spot a Butcher's B-movie a mile off.
