A new and revealing documentary about the celebrated film actor Robert Shaw, a movie star with many demons who hid from the world in a small Gaeltacht village in Mayo and found happiness and peace as locals warmed to him and helped him to live again. In Tuar Mhic Éadaigh, he became a different man – but still quite a character and the programme contains many colourful stories of his time there; drunken escapades, his attempts to become a farmer, his love of the Irish language and finally and tragically, his death. After his death, he was cremated and his ashes scattered in Tuar Mhic Éadaigh. In 2008, the locals erected a monument in his memory.

Robert Shaw was a leading Hollywood star, an Oscar-nominated actor who appeared in 56 movies. He was also an established author, the father of ten children and husband to three wives. He battled James Bond in From Russia With Love and a great white shark in Jaws. He won rave reviews for his performance as Henry VIII in A Man for All Seasons and was the memorable foil for Robert Redford and Paul Newman in The Sting.
He was a man of words and letters and was fascinated by the Irish language. He insisted his children learn it and he enrolled them in the local school where they were taught all subjects through Irish. His son, Colin Shaw, remained in Tuar Mhic Éadaigh following his father’s death and became fluent in Irish. Location shooting, interviews, unique access to Shaw’s personal archive and clips from his movies combine to give an in-depth view of who Shaw was and why he came to Ireland.
