Painstakingly researched over fifteen years, with in-depth, one-on-one interviews with major cast and crew members, Making Ryan’s Daughter charts the tumultuous filming of one of Ireland’s most iconic pieces of cinema.

David Lean’s making of Ryan’s Daughter in Dingle between 1968 and 1970 is shrouded in myth and sensational stories. Robert Mitchum and the glamour and mischief of 1960s Hollywood, the Irish climate, the studio system and one of film’s greatest auteurs all converged to make a troubled and fabled production in an unsuspecting town in Co. Kerry. Fifty years on, Paul Benedict Rowan has written the definitive account of one of the great movie follies and its unique place in cinematic and Irish history. Bringing together exclusive cast and crew interviews, a wealth of previously unseen archive material and extraordinary accounts of the local people who took Lean and his epic to their hearts, this pacy, entertaining and often jaw-dropping account is everything you ever wanted to know about David Lean’s great ‘fillum’ and its tragic aftermath.
