In my household when I was growing up the 1959 Walt Disney film Darby O’Gill and the Little People was a constant VHS rental around this time of year…as well as on Halloween actually, because that incredibly terrifying Banshee scene, you know what I mean?
I didn’t catch Darby for the first time on video tape though, I was lucky enough to watch it during it’s 1977 re-release at the Razorback Theater. This was one of my Father’s favorite films when he was younger so he was pretty stoked to introduce it to me. As a five-year-old I was totally captivated by the film and to be honest I still am to this day because there is quite a bit to love from the performances by Albert Sharpe, Janet Munro, Sean Connery, and Jimmy O’Dea of course as the Leprechaun King.
So with it being St. Patrick’s Day why not take a break from downing another Shamrock Shake and watch this 1977 re-release trailer for Darby O’Gill and the Little People?
