Terrible Irish Accents in the Movies
« on: January 04, 2017, 09:14:40 PM »
Not sure if there is a thread on this already, but I just watched a film called The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, made in 1939 and starring Bet Davis and Errol Flynn.

At one point (circa 1599 and in the middle of the 9 years war) the Earl of Essex is sent to lead an army in Ireland. He met the Earl of Tyrone who spoke with an accent which was a cross between Cockney and Kerry.

Not a movie, but Sam Neills accent was terrible in Peaky Blinders.
