The Rising of the Moon

John Ford's flavorful but rarely seen Irish film (1957) presents three short stories introduced by Tyrone Power: “The Majesty of the Law,” in which a policeman visits a recalcitrant farmer; “A Minute's Wait,” in which a train that's supposed to stop for a minute stops for two hours; and “The Rising of the Moon,” about two Irish-American patriots who escape during the 1921 rebellion. With Cyril Cusack, Maureen Connell, Frank Lawton, and Jimmy O'Dea. Ford said he made it strictly for fun, and you can take his word for it.
