Hungry Hill is an English drama from 1947 based on the 1943 novel of the same name by Daphne du Maurier. It chronicles a feud between two Irish families, the Brodricks and the Donovans, over the sinking of a copper mine. Spanning three generations, this mutual hatred threatens mutual destruction of both parties involved. The saga begins in 1840 when Morty Donovan (Arthur Sinclair) curses Copper John Brodrick (Cecil Parker) and the Brodrick clan for sinking the aforementioned mine. The story is told from the perspective of Fanny Rose Flower (Margarete Lockwood) who marries into the Brodricks. Money, class differences, and greed deepen the rift between the two families and the animosity thrives for nearly a century. Each generation finds a new main reason to resent the other family. Brian Desmond Hurst directs this epic featuring music by the London Symphony Orchestra. Acclaimed actors Dennis Price, Dermot Walsh and Jean Simmons also co-star.
