MOVIE REVIEW:Darby O’Gill and the Little People


Darby O'Gill (Albert Sharpe) seems to be as full of blarney as any old
codger in Ireland, but the stories of leprechauns he tells at the pub
are true. In fact, he and the tiny King Brian (Jimmy O'Dea), ruler of
the little people, are friendly adversaries, continually out-foxing
each other. Darby needs a bit of magical help from the wily king when
Lord Fitzpatrick (Walter Fitzgerald) replaces him as caretaker with the
handsome, strapping young Michael (Sean Connery) from Dublin. Michael
falls in love with Darby's beautiful daughter, Katie (Janet Munro),
which is all right with Darby; but the lad has a rival in a local
ruffian (Kieron Moore), the son of a devious widow (Estelle Winwood)
who wants her boy to be the caretaker. King Brian's supernatural
assistance is necessary to make everything come out all right, but the
sneaky leprechaun won't play matchmaker without a fight. Finally, real
trouble comes in the form of the Banshee, and Darby will need all his
quick wits to save his daughter from the wicked spirit.

This wonderful piece of whimsy from Walt Disney is brightened by
marvelous special effects and supreme film making craftsmanship, helmed
by Robert Stevenson, whose name is on most of the best live-action
films from the Disney Studios. In his films, major technical challenges
and small moments between actors are handled with equal deftness.
Today's moviegoers will enjoy seeing Sean Connery before he was James
Bond and even hearing him sing (though no one would wish his brief solo
a minute longer). Of course, the real star is Albert Sharpe, who didn't
make many movies, but whose thoroughly Irish charm is preserved for as
long as this movie lasts.
