    Again not a movie but I'm pretty sure this was a play. Could have been a PLay for Today but again I'm not sure.

    The premise of the movie was a businessman of some sort who had rejected his Irish father in his strive for success. I think the play starts at his father's funeral and 'may' be told in flashback style. From what I recall the businessman gets very drunk and digresses back to his Irish roots, singing Irish songs and losing all traces of 'English businessman respectibility' that he has tried so hard to embrace by seperating himself from his father.

    Again a long shot and a little vague but been curious about this one for a few years.

    name='batman']The Reckoning with Nicol Williamson.


    That looks good but I don't think that's it somehow. I don't remember any confrontation with Teddy boys. I think it was a play and was more about the guy regressing back to his father's roots. This would have been a mid 70's maybe early 80's play and not a movie. But I would like to check that out if I can find it.
