Movie Info

Traveling in Ireland, New York reporter Stephen "Fitz" Fitzgerald (Tyrone Power) befriends a leprechaun named Horace (Cecil Kellaway) by refusing to take his pot of gold. Back home, Fitz takes a job for D.C. Augur (Lee J. Cobb), a publisher with political ambitions and the father of his fiancée (Jayne Meadows). Soon, Horace reappears in Fitz's life, in the guise of a valet, to push him toward a romance with Irish girl Nora (Anne Baxter) and a job that doesn't compromise his principles.

    One of the slew of Hollywood movies celebrating all things Irish, this one's also got a chestnut about "do you wanna work for The Man or for yourself?" added. There are touches of the old TV show Bewitched in places but movie fans will love seeing where James Cameron lifted the whole below decks sequences of Titanic (dancing with the poor but happy lower classes), lifted near the whole thing. The stars have not only their usual chemistry, but done with an Irish brogue as well. S'okay.

    Charming little trifle. Ty is well cast, Anne Baxter charming and Jayne Meadows is effective, chic but not yet the lacquered phony she eventually evolved into too. However the picture is stolen by Cecil Kellaway when ever he appears with that irrestible twinkle in his eye.

    A charming little movie about a man who meets a Leprechaun (played by Cecil Kellaway from It's a wonderful life), which in turn is determined to show him the true path to love and happiness. What sounds rather cheesy is a tender and amusing comedy, which is half screwball, half character study. The scenes set in Ireland are lovely to look at and warm the heart so is Cecil Kellaway's oscar nominated performance of the Irish gnome. The movie is virtually unknown and hard to find on DVD, you can watch it on Youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbPfmFZPpsM. Recommended for fans of Ireland, classic Hollywood and B-Movies.
