Hollywood leading-man John Lodge later became governor of Connecticut. Before he turned to politics, however, Lodge found time to squeeze the British melodrama River of Unrest into his schedule. Lodge plays a county inspector, smack in the middle of yet another set-to between the British and the Irish. John Loder, a British officer in love with Irish colleen Antoinette Cellier, is force to shoot rebel-fighter Niall MacGinnis. Loder has no inkling that MacGinniss was the brother of Cellier. She uses his ignorance to lure Loder into a trap, cursing herself all the way but remaining loyal to her people. River of Unrest was based on The Trouble, a play by Dudley Sturrock and Noel Scott.
