Generational feud between two families in Ireland over a copper mine on the title property.
Lavishly made, well-acted, but comes across as very forced and soap opera-ish. The paper-thin characterizations (Brodricks all greedy snobs, Donovans all ignorant and semi-feral) don’t help at all. I reluctantly have to agree with the contemporary New York Times reviewer, who called it "ponderous."
Note: IMDb credits Ingrid Forrest as "Nora," but there is no such credit listing, nor character by that name. Also, James Robertson Justice and Hazel Court are listed as uncredited, but if they are there, they are far in the background. More likely, they were considered but not cast.
