Young John Cassidy is a driven man. By day; he works manual labor; secretly trains in the hills with a band of revolutionaries eager to take Ireland's fate into their own hands; joins mates for a pint; or sometimes enjoys the company of a lovely Dublin lass. By night and into the wee hours; he puts pencil to paper and writes of working-class Irish life. He will - he must - be a writer. The coming of age of renowned Irish playwright Sean O' Casey (Cassidy is a name O' Casey sometimes used for himself) comes to the screen in a colorful and atmospheric biopic directed by legendary John Ford (who left the film due to illness) and Jack Cardiff. Rod Taylor plays the title character; bringing strength and earthiness to his "best role ever" (Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide). A talented cast - including Julie Christie and Maggie Smith - adds to the appeal of a film whose script was approved by O' Casey and based on his autobiography.
