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
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!
