John Ford based his 1935 film The Informer, starring Victor McLaglen, on Liam Oâ€™Flahertyâ€™s 1925 novel of the same title. The film won four Academy Awards, including Best Director (Ford) and Best Actor (McLaglen), and has long been considered a classic motion picture.
Pat McCarthy, Chair of the English department at the University of Miami and Editor of the James Joyce Literary Supplement, will discuss the transformation of Flahertyâ€™s novel into Fordâ€™s movie, and thei portrayals of Irish political conflict in the 1920s.
