A classic faerie movie made in 1959. Darby O’Gill and the Little people is about an old man named Darby O’Gill and his attempts to outwit the leprechaun king into giving him three wishes. A young Sean Connery plays the part of a travelling man who comes to work in Darby ‘s place, as his landlord feels that Darby’s getting too old to work. Connery starts falling for Darby’s daughter Katie and their love carries on as a sort of side story. the high point of the film is when the banshee comes by one night for-telling Katie’s death, and so Darby finds the leprechaun king to use his wish. an amazing, timeless film that captures the magic of leprechauns and the dynamic of a close knit town, as well as emphasize the power of story telling. a must watch.
