The Devil, You Say . . .
From the bonnie isle of Ireland comes a thrilling murder caper with a plot that I have never encountered before . . . and I've watched quite a few murder mysteries. In this story the killer commits the perfect murder and is proclaimed 'not guilty' at his trial, escaping the justice of the Irish courts, with the help of a seemingly bewitched isolated Irish town called Inishgashel. Our story begins in a small Irish village that is host to a world famous author, played by the early television sit-com star of 'The Life of Riley' William Bendix. He is a loud, obnoxious atheist in this small religious village who incites the townsmen to anger when he spouts his atheist beliefs in the local pub. In an effort to taunt the villagers even more he stands in front of the little village church and loudly shouts that if there is a God, He should strike him down on the spot. Suddenly a shot rings out and standing nearby with a smoking gun in his hand is a man who becomes known as Johnny . . . Johnny Nobody, played by Aldo Ray. He claims to have amnesia, and has no idea who he is or why he killed the atheist author. As he goes on trial in Dublin all of the people of Ireland believe that he is a Divine tool of the Almighty sent to bring justice to the infidel. The village priest, played by Nigel Patrick, is starting to believe this also, and during discussions with one of his old teachers wonders if God would use murder with a gun to fulfill His will. When mysterious notes from the isolated village of Inishgashel quote strange Bible verses the priest decides to visit the town and search for answers. When Father Carey gets to the isolated town he discovers that the town is possibly bewitched . . . and maybe the hand of God . . . or the Devil himself, may be at work. He finally uncovers the truth, but all the forces of good seem to be against him as he tries to get back to Dublin before the trial is over. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled on it and enjoy the show.
