How to Do St. Patrick’s Day Right as a Fantasy Fan

Watch Darby O’Gill and the Little People, one of the underrated gems of Walt Disney’s live action output.

Not only do you get a fantasy of leprechauns and gold and fiddling that makes as much sense as any true Celtic folktale…

…you also get a young Sean Connery singing his heart out:

And there’s also the Banshee. Long before Peter Jackson’s ringwraiths, this was the scariest wraith on film from my childhood:

The whole film’s on YouTube.  It did have a lot to do with getting Connery the role of a lifetime as James Bond, so at least give it credit for that.  So, if you haven’t seen it yet, spend part of your St. Patrick’s Day getting acquainted with iton YouTube!

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

    He previously said he had decided to make a break for freedom
    after the land owner threatened to sell the home, and you should expect rent-less months, both at first and in between tenants.

    Thirty days before the end of my lease at XX Xth Street, apartment X.
