Synopsis

For a long time saint Patrick has been hailed as the redemptor of pagan Ireland - the man who rid the country of its snake population. You Can't Keep A Good Snake Down redresses this historical imbalance. The all-star cast includes Jackie Chan, Maria Montez and a coupla Irish and British politicians; scenes of harem and combat are presided over by the Virgin Mary. It's all in the eye of the chameleon.
