Shake Hands with the Devil was filmed entirely in Ireland. What is your favorite Irish set movie? The one that leaps immediately to mind is John Ford’s The Quiet Man. But there are also the wonderful Jim Sheridan movies, My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father and The Boxer, there’s Cal. For the sheer beauty of the Irish landscape if not for the movie itself, Neal Gabler would have to say David Lean’s Ryan’s Daughter.
