Jim, being partly of Irish descent myself, DARBY O'GILL AND THE LITTLE PEOPLE was one of our favorites when I was a youngster (though I admit THE QUIET MAN is still my #1 favorite :-)), so I'm delighted to see you launching one of your wonderful multi-part blog posts about it! Sad to hear that Janet Munro died young, though. While Barry Fitzgerald is always fun to watch, I think Albert Sharpe's performance is quite endearing. Looking forward to Part 2!

CW: that' a sweet story; I hope your daughter (your first born is a daughter, right?) is acquainted with her charming namesake.

Yep. She's a girl (still laughing). Both kids are "Disney" kids. "Darby O'Gill" and "Swiss Family Robinson" came into their lives early.

I'm going to enjoy this series, even though (sadly) I've never seen this film. Lots of great info here, as always! 🙂

As a young girl I was so taken with Janet Munroe as Katie that I renamed all of my dolls Janet. Eventually, it would be the name of my first born.

We grew up watching this movie, so I've always felt it was underrated. Loved reading your post and look forward to reading the next one!
