Reviews - What do customers think about Troubled Epic: On Location with Ryan's Daughter?

For Lean lovers? yes  Dec 7, 2007
For movie buffs hooked on Lean, especially those who love Ryan's Daughter, despite critical bashing that hasve altogether subsided, this is a bonanza of facts, trivia, and first-hand information about the making of this "troubled epic." Tanner, who lived on the Dinlge Peninsula for many years, has a assembled as many documented material as one would desire to see--at times going over the same ground as famed biographers of Lean like Gene Phillips and Kevin Brownlow--delving into the minutest details, from Sarah Miles's dental work to Robert Mitcum's drunken habits, to Christopher Jones's voice-dubbing, but doing so judiciously, selecting materials from locals who remembered the impact on this giant project's local economy. In three parts and eleven chapters, he explores the genesis of the idea by Robert Bolt, his collaboration with Lean on the script, and the latter's unrelenting efforts to make this movie despite delays, bad weather, and pressures from MGM executives for going over budget. In his Author's Note,Tanner eschews critical opinion, some of which he dismisses as "naval-gazing." His book is not meant to be critical analysis of David Lean. But the plethora of facts he provides may be the groundwork for scholars who wish wish to go beyond them. The rich illustrations help his point--for they give abundant evidence that this most neglected of the Lean epics is a timeless love story that refuses to wear out, despite the critical panning it received at the time of its release. Ryan's Daughter will remain a great, beautiful love story, and Tanner's book renews one appetite for for the film's visual riches and superb Lean story-telling.
Background on Ryan's Daughter  Sep 18, 2007
Believe "Ryan's Daughter" one of the all time greats. Lost count how many times I've watched it and will still do so every few months. Enthralled to read all about the making of the movie in "Trouble on Location", so much I did not know and fascinated to see photos of location shoots as they are now.

So caught up in this that if I ever visit Ireland (my forebears came from county Tyrone)I will visit the locations. Recommend this book to anyone who loves this movie.
