4.0 out of 5 stars R2 DVD info 16 Jan 2013
By James
Format:DVD
I didn't buy this film from Amazon, but I would like to add some extra information for those who have read Liam Byrne's review ("DISNEY DISAPPOINTS WITH THIS DVD"), regarding the dubbed version of the film.

The UK DVD I own seems to contain the original soundtrack intact. (For example, when King Brian orders for the Stradivarius, it is in Gaelic, which I understand was replaced with English in the dubbed release).

Looking at the disc on my PC, the files are dated 08/06/2004 (8th June - Liam's review is dated April 2004), so it looks like Disney made a second run at some point to replace the proper track.

Obviously if buying online it's not a sure thing which version you get, but just some assurance that the original version is out there in R2, in case anyone was put off.

5.0 out of 5 stars DISNEY DISAPPOINTS WITH THIS DVD 19 April 2004
Format:DVD
Somebody in the Disney Organisation should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.
DARBY O'GILL and THE LITTLE PEOPLE must rank as one of the very best Disney feature films ever. It was one of the top grossing movies of 1959, with stunning special effects, long before computer technology, that are amazing to watch even today. The Director of LORD OF THE RINGS has publicly stated that he got his inspiration for many of his special effects from this Disney Classic.
It was Sean Connery's first Hollywood movie, and the part that led to his career as 007 in the Bond movies.
Although thought by the public to be generally a "Children's Movie" , it is anything but, and the Banshee sequence is guaranteed to chill the spine of the most hardened Horror fan.
So why is the long overdue DVD disappointing..?.. Because Disney missed a golden opportunity to capitalise on this magnificent feature by failing to include a single Special Feature. No commentary (and Sean Connery or Kieron Moore, both would have been excellent choices), No Stills, No Lobby Cards, No posters, No Cinema Trailer, ...in fact..No Nothing..JUST the basic movie...
Another gripe.....is the tampered with sound track...The original voices of Albert Sharpe (Darby), Estelle Winwood (The Widow Sugrue), Jimmy O'Dea (King Brian of Knocknasheega) and Jack MacGowan (Padraig Og) have all been dubbed with replacement voices..and badly so. Even in the opening scene Estelle Winwoods "old Hag" voice has been replaced by one that sounds like the Queen of England's cousin.....too posh. And in this scene the "dubbed voice" refers to her son Pony Sugrue as TONY Sugrue.
The dubbing takes away much of the charm and originality of the the 1959 cinema released DARBY O'GILL.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's just lovely. 18 May 2012
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Darby O'Gill is well known for his fantastical stories, he is also known as the man who is constantly seeking the pot of gold he believes exists. When one day Darby tells all in the Inn that he has found the pot of gold, nobody of course pays him much heed, they are further aghast when Darby tells of a Leprechaun King called Brian, and how he tricked Darby out of his three wishes.

Fantastical romp that is cloaked by Irish mystical folklore, what's not to like really? It's a delightful tale told with intuitive pacing and containing wonderful special effects. Once Darby (Albert Sharp) enters the magical world of the leprechaun's, we are witness to gorgeous colour and jaunty shenanigans as director Robert Stevenson and his team unleash the tricks of the trade. Based on the Darby O'Gill stories written by H.T. Kavanagh, this production was something that Walt Disney had wanted to make for many many years, even visiting Ireland in 1948 to research for the project. Disney's wait was worth it for it oozes Disneys renowned production values and delivers entertainment for children and adults alike.

Joining the splendid Sharpe in the cast is the excellent Jimmy O'Dea as King Brian, Janet Munro as Katie, and a youthful Sean Connery as Michael McBride, all of which are in on the fun and all lighting up the tale with consummate ease. I defy anyone to not be tapping their feet for most of this picture! So go grab all the family and park yourselves in front of the TV and let the magic wash over you: for it will, to be sure to be sure. 8/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and spooky if you are a kid. 16 Sep 2001
By bernie VINE VOICE
Format:VHS Tape
I grew up with this film and it was not until much later that I realized that Sean Connery ...Michael McBride was the 007 guy. Everything is so fascinating when you are young. And the special effects are superb for the time. However I did have to take time to get over the banshee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Superb 17 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
If you like Irish Folklore then this is the video for you, with Leprachorns, Banshees and not forgetting the Irish Music. This video is a good all rounder, and is suitalble for children of all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shouldn't be a 'U' certificate. 30 Jan 2008
Format:DVD
I first saw this innocent looking Disney film when I was about 14 and it absolutely TERRIFIED me and left me with nightmares for months. And I was no sheltered child... having seen many horror and other 18 certificate films way before I got to that age ...but none of them left a dent like this U certificate Disney film.

Then recently I bought the film for nostalgic purposes to see if it still had the same effect (I'm now in my late twenties) and though it doesn't now I can still see why it did. Basically the film is all about Irish folklore and one of the ideas was of a 'Howling Banshee' - a ghost that appeared and wailed whenever someone was about to die. But unlike most ghosts in horror films, this one was inescapable in that it didn't try to kill you itself, it just let you know someone was dying... and there was nothing you could do about it. I think it was that IDEA that scared me so much as a kid, not the fact that it was a ghost (though as far as ghosts go, the special effects are worthy of any modern film in my opinion).

But as an adult I love it, especially because it has the familiar face of Sean Connery in it and does tell you an awful lot about Irish mythology - Leprechauns, pots of gold etc.

Basically it IS a magical film but just be wary of showing it to anyone under 15!
