Ulysses | 1967 | Barbara Jefford, Milo O’Shea

Set in Dublin over the course of 24 hours, Ulysses is a daring adaptation of James Joyce’s classic literary tome in which the lives of three main characters played by Barbara Jefford, Milo O’Shea and Maurice Roeves overlap. It courted controversy by faithfully reproducing some of the more explicit tracts from the text and the earthy language that informed much of Joyce’s work.
