Well, first off, this rating should be around 3 and 3/4 stars instead of just three. Hitchcock films the Sean O'Casey play just as it is. It is one of the first in a tradition of Hitchcock filmed plays. This tradition is that since the play was written for the stage and works best that way, why change the locales and "open" the play up as filmed versions of the play often do? Rope and Dial M For Murder are Hitchcock's greatest examples of this art. Juno and the Paycock is not the best of Hitch's films, but the actors are very good and the story is very interesting. It also shows Hitchcock's continuing transition to sound from just one year earlier. It is definitely worth checking out and is not great, perfect Hitchcock, but good Hitchcock showing his ability to utilize the fresh new sound technology in rather entertaining dialogue. It is worth a look.

This is a fascinating movie for those interested in where Alfred Hitchcock came from, cinematically, and also for those interested in the plays of Sean O'Casey. The film certainly is not typical of Hitchcock's work; and it is more melodramatic than the play itself (which is set in the Irish Civil War). It is, in short, an interesting example of trying to make the play form meet the demands of the relatively young film format. I agree that the results aren't particularly successful, but it does help to know the O'Casey play.

Not much to show of Hitchcock except the effect of guilt haunting the one character. Pretty much a filmed play, but the O'Casey play itself has its interest about an important period of Irish history, not to mention that it is an important play in the history of Irish drama. Ethnic stereotypes, Irish and Jewish, are broad for modern tastes.

Filmed in 1930 but so well done. It brings to life the times of Ireland duing THE WAR!
One OF Hitchcock's earliest and shows his filming syle from the beginning.
