SHAKE HANDS WITH THE DEVIL 11:30 PM
James Cagney, Don Murray, Dana Wynter, Michael Redgrave, Glynis Johns, Cyril Cusack; directed by Michael Anderson (1959, 111 min) Digital *Separate discounted admission.
An alternately brooding and violent tale of "the Troubles"—the Irish Civil War in the early 1920s—features Don Murray as a student who becomes embroiled in the increasingly bellicose actions of a charismatic revolutionary (James Cagney). Cinematographer Erwin Hillier is the real star of the film, providing consistently evocative images that strikingly capture the volatile atmosphere.
