Ulysses (Joseph Strick, 1967): 50+ Screenshots

(Left-click once on any image to enlarge)

These stills make up a great picture of Dublin in the 1960's (albeit with a few fantasy elements thrown in.) Many of the shots about town remind me of old black and white photos of my parents and other relatives...and indeed my own very early memories of going there on holiday from London when I was a kid in the early 70's. And this movie made from James Joyce's classic novel is actually a lot better than its low critical reputation would lead you to believe. I preferred it to the novel, to be honest. (It cuts out all the boring bits!)
