Kidnapping, mobsters and moonshine! Is this a story set in a country, which exists only in the minds of those who have never been to Ireland?
A practical joke lands our hero back in Ireland, to discover the plot of an evil Chicago gangster to oppress Ballyvoraine through rotten drink. This quota quickie celebrates the stereotypical Irish traditions of drinking, singing and fighting. It features Dinah Sheridan in her first starring role as the strong willed and slightly confused Moira Flaherty. Despite the 3 minutes of visible damage to the film 27 minutes in, the sound ensures that you will not lose the plot.
