Ryan's Daughter

The Making of an Irish Epic

The making of David Lean's Ryan's Daughter in Dingle, Ireland, 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 County 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. Painstakingly researched over fifteen years, Ryan's Daughter: The Making of an Irish Epic charts the tumultuous filming of one of Ireland's most iconic pieces of cinema. 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 fast-paced, entertaining, and often jaw-dropping account is everything you ever wanted to know about David Lean's great 'fillum' and its tragic aftermath.

About the Author

Paul Benedict Rowan is a journalist and author from Ireland. He was joint winner of the NewsBrands Campaigning Journalism and Investigative Journalism Award in 2019. He has written three books, including Champagne Football: John Delaney and the Betrayal of Irish Football: The Inside Story.

"Entertaining, pacy and the product of considerable research and commendable effort."—The Irish Times
