On the English Channel Island of Boonzey there is a small British Navy base serviced by minesweeper HMS Compton. The task of the vessel and its crew is to sweep the surrounding waters for German magnetic mines leftover from WW2. The task is easy since there are no mines in the local waters. Therefore, the crew spends its time in various ways in order to kill boredom. The skipper, Commander Stanton, spends his time fishing. His second in command, Lieutenant Pouter, spends his time womanizing. Chief Petty Officer Banyard and Leading Seaman Johnson spend their time smuggling booze, in collusion with the local French fishermen. However, their idyllic paradise is about to be shattered when the Navy higher-ups decide to send Captain Povey to assess the usefulness of the base and to decide whether to close it down. Sensing the danger of re-assignment to less idyllic Navy bases, the crew of minesweeper Compton decides to prove that their work in the area is vital, thus leading to their continued presence on the island of Boonzey. But Captain Povey is no fool and he's determined to declare the entire crew of HMS Compton redundant. Commander Stanton and his Chief Petty Officer Banyard come up with a series of schemes designed to convince Captain Povey of HMS Compton's usefulness. These schemes include a live mine-sweep demonstration, using a fake mine, a fake outbreak of Yellow Fever, using the crew of HMS Compton and a local French Revolution against the British Rule on Boonzey, using some drunk French islanders.

23 Paces to Baker Street is a 1956 American DeLuxe Color mystery thriller film released by 20th Century Fox. It stars Van Johnson and Vera Miles. Filmed in Cinemascope on location in London, the film focuses on Philip Hannon (Van Johnson), a blind playwright who overhears a partial conversation he believes is related to the planning of a kidnapping. When the authorities fail to take action because they believe his story is the product of a writer's fertile imagination, Hannon searches for the child with the help of his butler and ex-fiancée, using his acute sense of hearing to gather evidence and serve as guidance. The plot of the film bears some resemblance to Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window of 1954, which also features a disabled protagonist witnessing a crime, which the police refuse to take seriously, therefore placing him in danger and culminating in a final standoff with the killer in the protagonist's darkened apartment.

Fact-based historical drama about the Irish farmer rebellion …
Fact-based historical drama about the Irish farmer rebellion against the landed and privileged class. In 1880, prominent Irish politician Charles Stewart Parnell, President of the Irish Land League which represented tenants' rights, held a public speech against the landlords. In his fiery speech, Parnell urged shunning the landlords rather than killing them. One of the worst landlords, Captain Charles Boycott, lived in County Mayo and charged extortionate rents from his tenants and sharecroppers. In case of late payment, Captain Boycott forcibly evicted his tenants using the constabulary force or the army. Farmer Hugh Davin advocated the use of force rather than the passive resistance advocated by Irish politician Parnell. However, Parnell pertinently commented that use of force against the landlords will invite reprisals from the part of the army and the police. In the end, the farmers and those already evicted from their homes decide to give Parnell's idea a try. As part of their shunning against Captain Boycott, it is agreed that no-one should talk to the landlord, no-one should work for him, no one should harvest his crops, sell him goods or provide any kind of service to him. Even Father McKeogh, the village priest, supports the idea of a peaceful protest against the landlord. A desperate Boycott hires out-of-county farmer to pick his crops and requests army protection for himself and his laborers. He also alerts The Times to his plight and the publication immediately coins the word 'boycott' that same year.

The interrelationships between three generations within the lineage of the wealthy "John Brodricks" - Copper John, his son Greyhound John, and Greyhound John's son Wild Johnnie - in the mid to late nineteenth century Ireland are presented. Their stories are centered on the copper mine Copper John develops on Hungry Hill, and the feud between the Brodricks and the townsfolk, but especially the Donovans, who, having claimed Hungry Hill as their own for centuries before the Brodricks displaced them two hundred years ago when they moved into the area, have always wanted it maintained in its pristine natural condition while Copper John sees the mine as progress in addition to increasing his own and his family's wealth. Unlike his brother Henry who ends up being the favored son because of the issue, Greyhound John has no interest in or aptitude in any aspect of the mine, which places him at odds with his father. A similar animosity develops between Copper John and Wild Johnnie, the former who has never trusted the latter - that mistrust initially unfounded - which has profoundly affected Wild Johnnie's development, he who is only waiting for his grandfather to die to inherit his fortune. Present for most of these proceedings is Fanny Rosa, Greyhound John's tempestuous wife and Wild Johnnie's mother who primarily wants to see peace exist not only within the family but in the community.
