Conquering the Coquette

There is no more delicious way to spend a rainy afternoon or a quiet evening than with a story about two Irish families and a curse that may destroy them both. Of course, while the Irish men rule the day . . . . It is the Irish lasses that rule the men . . . . And it will be one wild woman who will tame the Brodrick men . . . . Once one Broderick man can tame her. Margaret Lockwood is Fanny Rosa, the woman that every man desires, and the woman who desires every man . . . . Searching for the one man who can tame her flaming desires. Hungry Hill is a green and peaceful place overlooking the Irish town where the Brodricks and the Donovans are about to begin a blood feud that will last for generations. Copper John Broderick wants to build a mine to dig the rich copper out of the hill, and he will hire and pay all of the Donovan's a good salary to get it done. Old man Donovan has a different mind . . . He does not desire that the Donovan's should be great or rich by working the mine . . . . His desire is to be left alone, and to enjoy the green Hungry Hill without any scourge of mine and machinery. Thus begins the feud, but for my money the meat of this story is the love life of the Broderick boys, and the women that they desire. I can appreciate all of the Margaret Lockwood fans, and quickly agree that there are few women on the big screen with greater beauty or personality . . . . But personally I am more of a Jean Simmons kinda guy. Margaret Lockwood will tease and please Henry Brodrick, played by Michael Denison, but it will be younger brother John who will tame the wild woman of Hungry Hill . . . . . With the help of his younger sister Jane, played by Jean Simmons. She tells her brother that Fanny will marry him the day that she wants to . . . . But she will not want to until the day that she thinks he does not want her. John takes her advice and teases Fanny more than she can tease him, and she becomes putty in his hands . . . . She will become his love-slave, the mother of the next generation of Brodricks, and eventually the leader of the Brodrick family as the feud continues to consume the two grand Irish clans. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
