      It must have taken me ten tries over the years to finally sit and get through all of Darby O’Gill and the Little People. I don’t know what it is about this tale of leprechauns and banshees, but for literally decades I’ve tried to watch the entire film unsuccessfully. Recently, I forced myself to finally get through the entire film. I’m not sure why it took that long, if it was difficulty in understanding the words

      as a child, or just being bored by the story, but something kept me from this movie.

      Actually, it’s not a bad movie at all. I think the biggest surprise for me now is seeing Sean Connery as such a young age, playing such a part in a Disney production. It’s not how I’m used to thinking of this James Bond actor. He was actually very fun to watch here, though. He had charm to go ...


      • along with the drama. I liked him the best.

        It may be that I never really understood anything that was happening in Darby O’Gill and the Little People. I have to admit that I wasn’t all that sure about everything I saw when I did finally see the whole thing. It was a little confusing for me. Maybe I need to stop questioning the magic of it. It might also be that except for Connery,

        I don’t know these actors. That put some distance between myself and the story. I like seeing familiar faces.

        The story itself was somewhat enchanting, though I wasn’t that fond of King Brian and his leprechauns. They aren’t my image of the little people. Maybe I wanted and expected something even more magical.

        Overall, Darby O’Gill and the Little People is a decent movie, but for me, it’s disappointing. I am glad I finally sat through it, though.
