  • Darby O’Gill and the Little People

    1959. Ireland/USA. Directed by Robert Stevenson. Screenplay by Lawrence Watkin, based on the short stories of Hermione Templeton Kavanagh. With Janet Munro, Sean Connery, Albert Sharpe. Over a decade in development and featuring visual effects that hold their own even today, this Disney leprechaun classic remains endearing and engaging largely on the basis of its charming performances. Sharpe had caught Walt Disney’s eye over a decade earlier as the original lead in the Broadway hit Finian’s Rainbow, while the young Connery would soon find international fame with a considerably more sophisticated persona. 93 min.
