Odd Man Out

Synopsis: Johnny McQueen, leader of a clandestine Irish organization, has been hiding in the house of Kathleen and her mother, planning a hold-up that will provide his group with the funds needed to continue its activities. During the hold-up, things go sour: Johnny is wounded, cannot make it back to the hideout, and disappears in the back-alleys of Belfast. Immediately, a large-scale man-hunt is launched, and the city is tightly covered by the constabulary, whose chief is intent on capturing Johnny and the other members of the gang. Kathleen sets out in search of Johnny.

- Don't you start worrying, Kathleen.

It'll go fine.

Thanks. Here.

You haven't told me

if you're remaining here.

I'll be back but when the excitement

ends, I'll make for the hills.

- There are friends up there.

- Shall I come and see you?

Of course. Bring Granny.

You've been a great friend, both of you,

putting up with me

while I've been hiding here.

You've been very...

Well, you know what I mean.

Johnny, will you ever be free?

Someday perhaps. I must go now.



Do I look like a businessman?

Don't worry, Kathleen.

We'll be back in no time.

Johnny, you've been stuck

in this house for six months.

You're not fit for it.

Let Dennis go instead.

Will you be here when I come back?

Here we are now.

- Harry Jermison, seven...

- All right. Lay off your work.

Back up there. Back up.

Sit down. Make yourself comfortable.

Put your hands down.

Have you not got these in yet?

I say, stop!

What are you doing in here? Stop!

Stop! Stop!

Get in! Hurry! Come on, Johnny!

Come on!

Come on. Get in!

- Look out, Johnny!

- Who are you?

Get him in the car! Quick!

- Look out!

- Get him in, man! He's hit.

Pat! Not so fast! Wait a minute!

Wait till we get him in!

Pull him in, can't ye?

Slow down, he's slipping!

Don't let him go!

Stop, Pat! Johnny!

Stop! Pull up, can't you? Pull up!

The whole crowd of us will be lifted.

Back up! Quickly!

- Get out and fetch him.

- He's dead.

Yous told me to hold the car

and now you just sit there.

Go on, man! Reverse!

Do we go back for him?

If we cut down there,

they'll be waiting for us.

- Run back and look for him.

- We'll pick him up at the corner.

He'll be there ahead of us.

I'm not staying here, it's too risky.

- If you'd only backed the car!

- Here's the street.

Keep a lookout. Can you see him?
