    Comments about Young Cassidy:

    I saw this movie in the theater when it was first released in 1965. Rod Taylor leads a prime cast in this slightly fictionalized biography of the great Irish playwright Sean O'Casey. Maggie Smith and Julie Christie round out the cast in fine roles as his lovers. Filmed in a gritty, realistic style of Ireland of 100 years ago, it is an enjoyable profile of a young playwright caught up in the turmoil of his times.

      Comments about Young Cassidy:

      I enjoyed watching this movie twice in the weekend I first received it. Rod Taylor and Maggie Smith were great - and so young. Time sure passes. I liked the story, the location and sets, the numerous characters and how each were part of the young life of John Cassidy. Nicely done.

      Comments about Young Cassidy:

      As with other WB Archives DVD's, no Special Features or Scene Selection.

      Beautiful re-mastered print captures the rich colors and textures of Ireland.

          Comments about Young Cassidy:

          I bought this DVD because I was curious about the
          role Maggie Smith have in this film, thinking
          that maybe she and Julie Christie may have one
          or two scenes together, but that was not to be,
          so I am a bit disppointed. But still, it is a
          good addition to my Maggie Smith movie collection.

            I have now watched this movie a few times & it's better each time. I believe that this is one of Rod Taylor's best. I love having this added to my library. Thank you for the great condition & honesty about the movie. I will be ordering from you again.
