Happy St. Patrick’s Day! My Recommendation for Today’s Viewing…


Darby O’Gill and the Little People, 1959, directed by Robert Stevenson, cinematography by Winton C. Hoch, the delightful costumes designed by Getrude Casey and Chuck Keehne, the spry music composed by Oliver Wallace, the visual effects were tackled by the team of Peter Ellenshaw, Eustace Lycett, Joshua Meador, Jim Fetherolf and  Albert Whitlock. Darby starred Albert Sharpe, Janet Munro and Sean Connery, with the fine supporting cast of: Jimmy O’Dea, Kieron Moore, Estelle Winwood, Denis O’Dea, J.G. Devlin, Jack MacGowran, Farrell Pelly, Nora O’Mahoney and Patrick Sullivan Burke. What a infectiously funny film! Don’t forget to wear the Green!
