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!

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
