Hungry Hill (1947, )

By Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 30, 2019 From The Stop Button

I have never read Hungry Hill: The Novel, but even before I finished watching Hungry Hill: The Film, I?d decided it?s one of the worst novel-to-film adaptations. It?s impossible know what point novel author Daphne Du Maurier was trying to make but it didn?t come through in the film. If she was even ... Read full article

Brian Desmond Hurst Facts
John Ford has referred to the Ulster director as his "cousin".

Hurst's Ourselves Alone (the Irish translation is Sinn Fien)was banned in his native Northern Ireland at the time of its release in 1936 although it has now achieved the recognition it deserved and is shown in museums and other public access points in Northern Ireland.

Educated at Ecole de Beaux Arts in Paris.
