The Shamrock Handicap

Directed by John Ford
United States, 1926
Silent, Romance, Drama

Synopsis

Similar to what was to become one of his most successful pictures, The Quiet Man, The Shamrock Handicap is a romantic comedy set in Ireland. The visuals in it look forward to the more picturesque, spacious, classical compositional style that would come to define Ford’s 1950’s films.

Farrell Mac Donald dans le rôle de l'entraîneur, accompagné de son inséparable canard Brian Boru... www.cinefiches.com
