Hell’s Kitchen to Hollywood

John Kelly presents Hell’s Kitchen to Hollywood, the story of the men and women who changed how the Irish were portrayed in cinema forever more. From New York to Boston to the canyons of Monument Valley, the presenter explores how such cinematic legends as James Cagney, John Ford, Grace Kelly and Bing Crosby helped bring a number of Irish characters, such as policemen, strong Irish women, chancers and priests, to the big screen.

It follows the Irish story in America during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, a time when many Irish immigrants rose from the slums of New York City to the bright lights of Hollywood.

Here they produced some of the most iconic film producers and actors in cinema history.
