The camera shot is taken from outside number 11 Boomer Street. Mary Boyland's house, my granny. My mother remembers the film crew spraying the street with water to make it seem like a rainy night.

Burnsey,  I believe the litle girl was related in some way to the great Joseph Tumelty so there is a great acting line in the family. The wee lass was paid 5.10 for each  day on the set, so must have been the most popular girl in her school, that would have been a small fortune to a youngster then, The inside of the Crown Bar was built in a studio in England where almost the entire film was made.

Anyways, the film was made in 1947, and Joe Tomelty's daughter Frances, who looks so like that wee girl, wasn't even born till 1948! ;)

 James Mason was not the first choice for the role of Johnny McQueen. It was first offered to Stewart Granger, who flicked through the script to check the number of lines he would have, and turned it down as not being a big enough part. He should have checked the stage directions!   
 William Alwyn's score was composed and recorded before the film was completed, to enable the actors in the last few scenes to listen to the music while they filmed, and so encourage them to match their steps to the underlying beat.   
 The Crown Liquor Saloon in Great Victoria Street, Belfast, provided the location for some of the exterior shots, together with Boomer Street, Cupar Street and Queen's Square, Belfast.   
 The book on which the film was based was written by F.L. (Laurie) Green, an Englishman who went to Belfast on holiday and liked it so much he stayed for eighteen years   
 The street urchins were played by boys from the old Milltown Industrial School.   
 The small girl on the roller skate was played by Joseph Tomelty's niece Maura Shields, who was paid 5.10 shillings for each camera working day   
 Many of the supporting cast were actors from the famous Abbey Theatre in Dublin.
