On location of a film production of Brendan Behan's 'The Quare Fellow' director Arthur Dreifuss talks about the challenge of transforming the work for cinema.

In late 1961, a film version of 'The Quare Fellow' was made in Ireland.

Director Arthur Dreifuss, on location at Kilmainham Gaol, talks about his own opposition to capital punishment and the power of Behan's play in showing an audience how society at that time was exacting its justice.

The film starred Patrick McGoohan, who later starred in the cult television series 'The Prisoner', and writer Walter Macken.
