The Golden Age of Hollywood

With St. Patrick's Day coming up, I'm thinking about movies with an Irish theme, but only feel-good movies, nothing too gritty. 

I've come up with the following so far: 

The Quiet Man  

Little Nellie Kelly  

Darby O'Gill and the Little People  

Dancing at Lughasadh  

The Secret of Roan Innish  

Finn's Rainbow  

Leap Year  

Waking Ned Devine 

Are there any other classic, feel-good movies with a strong Irish theme that might be missing from most people's lists? Maybe something more obscure?

Somewhat belatedly but "The Luck of the Irish". Cecil Kellaway alone is reason enough to watch this movie! Naturally Tyrone Power and Anne Baxter isn't too bad either... great fun.  

Thanks for that suggestion, Anthony! I looked it up in Leonard Maltin's guide. Cecil Kellaway as a leprechaun...it sounds intriguing!

I recently enjoyed Leap Year with Amy Adams :)

I bought Leap Year last year just to watch on St. Patrick's Day. I enjoyed it, too.

By the way, The Luck of the Irish is a part of the excellent Tyrone Power Matinee Idol Collection. Class all the way and highly recommended!

Man’s Castle 1933

Embarrassed to say but I just watched Frank Borzage’s Man’s Castle for the first time this week. Wow, what a movie! Spencer Tracy and Loretta Young are both excellent but the way the movie plows headlong into the plight of desperate people during the despression is remarkable. There are some obvious hard cuts in the movie […]

How’s It Going, Everybody?

Every now and then I stop back in to look at some of the updated comments and I’m surprised, and gladdened, to see that there still are comments! Now, I no longer get paid to post here so this is just a “Hi, how are you?” to everyone who still comments here (so don’t freak […]
