I had never seen this movie before TCM played it 4/13. I adored it! I wonder who could 'not' have liked it!

I believe I read that Clark Gable apologized for this movie. It is kind of a Cliff Notes version of Irish history before The Troubles, and the main trouble here is with Gable's performance - he delivered his lines with a kind of puny languor that kind of made me wish he would hurry up and die and get it over with. Pacing was definitey an issue. That being said, it was nice to see Gable not dragging some woman off her feet and kissing her into submission. That is the Gable I believe people paid to see, and he played so far against type in this film that his fans couldn't forgive him for it. There are echoes his performance in "Parnell" in "Gone with the Wind" and "It Happened One Night," where Gable learned to show a more tender side without appearing vapid. Myrna Loy is her usual wonderful self - I don't think she gave a bad performance. The supporting cast is made up of the usual suspects, the solid group you see in movies with healthy budgets that the studio expected to do well. I don't know if I'd buy the film, but I'll certainly watch it again. I've been curious about it for years.

I watched this movie for the first time on TCM on Monday Sept 26th 2010. As an Irish born person I loved this movie & want to know how I can buy it so that I can share it with my children who are American born

i have a lot to say about this movie.
Great movie, one of Clark and Merna's best ever. Please make it available in video for purchase.
As far as I know, this has never been released publicly on any format like VHS or DVD. Unfortunately, it bombed at the box-office and so nobody has any interest in it now. It's a pity, because it is of great historical significance, particularly to Irish people. My only hope is that RTÉ or the Irish government will at some time buy the rights to it and show it on national television. If TCM have it, I urge them to show it (come on, as part of a Clark Gable weekend matineé!) It's certainly a shame that a Gable film like this is, for all intents and purposes, lost.
