Fifty Dead Men Walking author holds legal fire against TIFF

The author of Fifty Dead Men Walking is holding his fire. Martin McGartland, the Royal Ulster Constabulary mole who infiltrated the IRA and nearly paid for it with his life, has decided to see the film for a second time. The film, which screens as a gala on Sept. 10, has been the centre of controversy since McGartland denounced the work as a distortion of his life story and threatened to take legal action against its producers as well as TIFF.
