  • This Other Eden

    1959. Ireland. Directed by Muriel Box. Screenplay by Patrick Kirwan, Blanaid Irvine, based on the play by Louis D’Alton. With Audrey Dalton, Leslie Phillips, Niall MacGinnis. Bearing parallels to The Quiet Man, This Other Eden centers on a wealthy Englishman (Phillips) who comes to settle in rural Ireland and falls for a local girl. The story differs in its comedic exploration of the romanticization of Ireland and the Irish by nationals and foreigners alike. Produced by Emmet Dalton, the film was one of three popular Abbey Theatre adaptations that kick-started Ireland's modern film industry through the establishment of Ardmore Studios. 81 min.
