"Ulysses" is a film shot in 1967 and based on James Joyce's novel "Ulysses".

Starring Milo O'Shea as Leopold Bloom, Barbara Jefford as Molly Bloom, Maurice Roëves as Stephen Dedalus, T. P. McKenna as Buck Mulligan and Sheila O' Sullivan as May Golding Dedalus, it was adapted by Fred Haines and Joseph Strick, and directed by Strick. There have been other movies based on Ulysses but this one stands out for its fidelity to the book and the fact that almost the entire screenplay is taken from lines in the book. It was perhaps the first motion picture to use the word "fuck" (another contender being "I'll Never Forget What's 'Isname"). In New Zealand, screeners were required to show the film before gender-segregated audiences. It was not approved for general release in the Republic of Ireland until 2000; however, it was screened at the Irish Film Institute (a private film club) in the 1970s.
