Captain Boycott is a 1947 historical drama. The story is set in Ireland during the period of history known as The Land War. The Land War plotted absentee English landlords against Irish tenant farmers. One of the heroes of the period was the Irish statesman Charles Stewart Parnell. Parnell advocated non-violent resistance rather than violence. Stewart Granger plays an Irish farmer named Hugh Davin. Davin teams up with a local priest named Father McKeogh (Alastair Sim) to encourage local tenants to resist a land agent named Captain Boycott. Their resistance is successful and the word boycott becomes a new term in the Englsih language. This is a well done historical drama.
