Darby O'Gill

Darby O'Gill seems to be an old man who tells the strangest of stories, but the stories of leprechauns he tells at the pub are true. In fact, he and King Brian, the leprechaun, have a rather friendly relationhip. Darby needs help from the king when Lord Fitzpatrick replaces him as caretaker with the handsome young Michael from Dublin. He falls in love with Darby's daughter, Katie. But the he has a rival in a local boy, the son of a widow who wants her boy to be the caretaker. The Leprechaun’s assistance is necessary to make everything come out all right, but the he will not give it up. In the end trouble comes - the Banshee, and Darby will need help to save his daughter from the wicked spirit.

Seeing as I enjoy reading about Ireland's many mythical creatures, what more apropriate is it to talk about this Irish classic?

Sean Connery is the last surviving cast member!

A fun, dramatic parody of the movie trailer

Made in 1959 to the Walt Disney Productions.

Creatures

In this movie, they have used both Leprechauns and a Banshee - both of which I have written about. I find mythical creatures very interesting, and was glad to see that the movie had something besides leprechauns.
