An interview with Joseph Strick, Producer and Director of a film adaptation of Ulysses by James Joyce.

This was the first film adaptation of the Joyce novel, which was published in 1922. 

The film starred Milo O'Shea as Leopold Bloom, Maurice Roëves as Stephen Dedalus, Barbara Jefford as Molly Bloom. 

Do you think you can hold the flavour of the novel without the period?

During filming on location in Dublin, Joseph Strick took time out to talk to RTÉ about the production. The film is set in the present and not in Joyce's time, but Strick feels that they can hold the flavour of the novel without the period. 

The film, which was released in 1967, went on to receive both Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations. 

An RTÉ News report broadcast on 1 September 1965.
