Special notes Director of photography: Wolf Suschitzky
"In NO RESTING PLACE the windswept hills and desolate roads of western Ireland are patterned in racing cloud and running shadow; there are scenes in which the characters are not so much bathed in light as in drama, each shot fitting the mood of the story." (Connery Chappell, Picturegoer)
