The Synopsis for Darby O'Gill and the Little People (1959) 1080p

Darby O'Gill 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, 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 replaces him as caretaker with the handsome, strapping young Michael from Dublin. Michael falls in love with Darby's beautiful daughter, Katie, which is all right with Darby, but the lad has a rival in a local ruffian, the son of a devious widow 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.

Shimmering Irish FantasyReviewed bywes-connorsVote: 7/10

In old Ireland, grandfatherly Albert Sharpe (as Darby O'Gill) is going to be replaced as castle caretaker, due to his advancing years. Instead of keeping the castle grounds tidy, Mr. Sharpe tells pub tales about his encounter with the "little people." Lord of the manor Walter Fitzgerald arrives from Dublin with young and sexy Sean Connery (as Michael McBride), to replace his retiring handyman. While Mr. Connery exchanges come-hither looks with Sharpe's pretty young daughter, Janet Munro (as Katie O'Gill), the old man plots to receive his "three wishes" from Leprechaun king Jimmy O'Dea (as Brian Connors).

While Walt Disney's animated films consistently looked state-of-the-art, some of his studio's 1950s "live action" features looked a bit cheap - not so with "Darby O'Gill and the Little People". The "Special Photographic Effects" by Peter Ellenshaw and Eustace Lycett and "Animation Effects" by Joshua Meador are excellent. Director Robert Stevenson and Technicolor photographer Winton C. Hoch compliment their efforts. Witchy Estelle Winwood (as Sheelah Sugrue) and no-good son Kieron Moore (as Pony) offer fine support. The story doesn't know whether to be glossy children's fare, or dark fantasy. With its emphasis on the latter, the last act is especially memorable. The "Banshee" and "death coach" aren't too original, but they are very nicely done.

Magical Irish fun with leprechauns and an endearing yarn spinnerReviewed byroghacheVote: 9/10

I saw this movie several decades ago when I was a child myself, but for me to have remembered it so fondly all these years, it must have been a great movie. My parents watched it with me and also thoroughly enjoyed this tale with its lovely little romance, so it's not merely a story for kids. It paints an enchanting picture of village life on the Emerald Isle back in the 1920's, complete with both fairy folk and very endearing human characters, all of course speaking with magnificent Irish brogues.

The Irish Darby O'Gill lives in County Kerry where he serves as caretaker for Lord Fitzpatrick, the lord of the manor. At the village pub he frequently weaves his tall tales of leprechauns and banshees, and the disbelieving villagers humour him by listening. However, one day Darby does indeed capture the king of the little folk and discovers the legendary pot of gold. Of course none of his fellow villagers take his claims seriously. The battle of wills that ensues between Darby and the lovable but crafty leprechaun King Brian is the heart of the story, as each tries to outsmart the other. Meanwhile, Darby also has a beautiful daughter, Katie O'Gill, who has two suitors vying for her affections, Michael McGill and Pony Sugrue. Michael is himself the new replacement for the aging Darby's caretaker job.

There are some creepy scenes of the banshee and the death carriage with its headless driver, but overall this movie is just plain magical fun. All the idealized features of Irish village life back then are present here...the thatched cottages, village priest, and local pub. The movie has wonderful special effects for its era, totally convincing me that there are indeed leprechauns! It also boasts lovely green Irish scenery and lively fiddle tunes.

While I don't specifically remember the actors, the two main likable but dueling characters, Darby and King Brian, are both very convincingly portrayed. I was surprised to note here that a young Sean Connery plays Katie's suitor, Michael McGill, and even sings in this picture. This actor is one of my favourites and simply grows more appealing with age, but I'd love to watch him again back in this early role before James Bond.

This movie is surely one of Disney's best and would make great St. Patrick's Day entertainment. It's pure whimsical fun, indeed right up there with Mary Poppins, and alas, such as they don't make any more. There's no movie I'd recommend more than this Irish fantasy for charming and highly entertaining family viewing. I smile myself just thinking about this tale that captured so magically for me all that Irish folklore back during my own childhood.

Here's to Darby O'GillReviewed bysomeguy889Vote: 9/10

I do not know how much I would like this movie if I saw it today for the first time. But, since I grew up on this movie, I have no choice but to absolutely love it. We had this videocassette in our closet for years, it didn't have a cover on it, but it didn't need one. Wow, how I grew up on those colorful special effects. Those leprechauns riding small white horses around an old Irish man playing the fiddle. The horse turning silvery when enchanted by the leprechauns. The Banshee. Oh, that Banshee. You've never seen a scarier Banshee on film and you never will. A fantastic movie. A young Sean Connery is in it, and that old woman with that scary voice is fantastic. And Darby O'Gill...ahh.. one of the best family films and fantasy movies out there. ANd don't forget the scary, black creativity of the Death Cab.

Here's to Darby O'Gill. Clink
