ABSTRACT
We are a nation of cinemagoers, have managed to produce some first-rate films over the decades and have enjoyed the odd success at the Oscars (though the fact that we speak English, and Daniel Day-Lewis is a Hibernophile, gives us a distinct advantage over other small nations). But perhaps our greatest contribution to the cinema has come from our emigrants. The great John Ford is just one of the many Irish-Americans in the Hollywood pantheon of directing greats. John Huston - who bought and restored the Georgian mansion St Cleran's in Craughwell, Co Galway, and who became an Irish citizen in 1964 - was another. Huston's adaptation of Jame Joyce's short story The Dead is one of the finest of all Irish feature films.
