Holy Crap! Someone ELSE remembers Darby O'Gill & The Little People??? Back when Sean Connery still had real hair and most of it was in his eyebrows?

By the way....did you know that "The Quiet Man" was Wayne's own personal favorite of all his films?

Both of Maureen O'Hara's brothers were in there also! I did know about the Fitzherald's but figured with the links it would have them. Bought my wife the republic classics re-release last year, and it is always around her dvd player...... Darby O'Gill has just never captured me the same way as the Quiet Man.

Barry played the match maker who's throat was always dry and his brother played the Minister who told John Wayne about his boxing days.

On one of our trips to Ireland, we visited the little house in the movie. There were mannequins inside representing one of the scenes from The Quiet Man---.

By the way.. I'm 38, and the missus 43, not a spring chicken anymore, but not that advanced in years earlier, well... a decade or so in the beer mines and making it past 35, the bod is getting a bit treacherous
but, I've been watching "old" movies all my life and have quite the collection of cheesy B grade sci-fi and horror..

Remember kids.. before there was made for video, heck, before there WAS video, you had the made for drive-in, and midnight screenings class of movies that no one was really watching anyways... if'n y'all know what I'm talking about and um... *wink* I think you do!
way back in the day, the Drive-in showed the A movie first, then after a break to get people to the snack bar the "B" movie ran of course many of us just used the intermission to ah....come up for air before the second half of tonsil hockey

At the drive in we always referred to it as breaking in the back seat! And after that the seat was no longer a 'virgin.' Now I am depressed, I realize that we have had the wifes 'new' car for four years, and the back seat is still a virgin! LOL

Not sure about the boats Charlie, but the chatter sure turned to past memories in a hurry---.

Especially the drive-in movie stuff---.

If you have a small child (we have a ten year old, who can neither sit still or be quiet in a movie theater) then drive-ins are a godsend! Just give her a lawn chair and sit in front of the car. There are two drive-ins within 50 miles of us (close in South Eastern Idaho).
