Just to add, i believe the Church in the film is St. Paul's, York Road Belfast.

My Mum and Dad got married there.

that movie is dated I think, its brutal when they cant get an irish actor to play a movie about Belfast, even better one from Belfast or the north anywhere, gregson is a fair actor but??it was like that in the early days when they wouldn't let a chinaman play the lead or a black, authenticity should be paramount, there now, that's my rant over... :D

Still get that with modern films, use other actors with dodgy Irish accents.

I watched this film some years back and it seemed to me that only a few seconds of it were actually filmed in Belfast. The rest was probably filmed in a studio in England. But what really grated was the accents. The story was about a protestant family, a protestant minister played by Noel Purcell, and it took place in a protestant area of Belfast - yet everyone spoke with a brogue! Today it would be laughed off the screen, but when it was made, all Irish people, north or south spoke with brogues in movies. I have to wonder what reaction it got on the Shankhill Road or in East Belfast at the time. It's only since the "Troubles" that most people in England realised there was another accent in Ireland apart from the brogue.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/670443.A_Grand_Man

"A Grand Man"      "By Catherine Cookson"       1954

" 'Me da's a grand man!' "

"Mary Ann Shaughnessy has spoken; question her who dare."

"For although Mary Ann may look quite an ordinary small girl from a dockland tenement, always hot in defense of a ne'er-do-well father, she is in fact a one-man army, armoured with faith and possessed of formidable qualities."

"Set on Tyneside, the part of the world which Catherine Cookson knew and understood so well, this heartwarming and humorously observed book skillfully weds an authentic and unsentimentalized background to the kind of fairytale story that we all like to believe could come true and which the Mary Ann Shaughnessys of this world know to be true."

"The moral of A Grand Man is simply that faith can move mountains, but the delight of the book lies in the telling and in the character of its heroine as she battles, connives, and bargains to get a better way of life for those she loves and especially for the 'grand man' himself."

"A Grand Man is the first of the Mary Ann stories and was made into a film, Jacqueline, in 1956."

Was the film Jacqueline shot in Belfast, or just fleeting Belfast scenes ?

I'd buy it if it was a Belfast film; the script or quality of the film is almost irrelevant.

I'm interested in any old Belfast films.

Suggestions of other Belfast films appreciated too, but must be pre 1980.

*Sorry, just noticed JJ's post that Jacqueline is available on youtube.
