“The Molly Maguires is a movie which has become better over the years. I am surprised that it was commercially unsuccessful in itu0026#39;s day, since itu0026#39;s absolutely no worse than similar movies of those years such as u0026quot;Ryanu0026#39;s daughteru0026quot;, u0026quot;Emperor of the northu0026quot;, or much appraised movies of later years like u0026quot;Matewanu0026quot;, which explores the same topic of conflict between oppressed working class and the system thatu0026#39;s exploiting them. This film is beautifully photographed, and the acting is brilliant, especially from Richard Harris and Sean Connery. The sets are magnificent, and the viewer can feel and sympathize with the burden of the coal miners and their families working and struggling against the system that is grinding them down, and that they can not change, even if they give their lives in the course of that struggle. This film deserved much more and I just think that this is a classic that has to be recognized. 9/10”
