Product Description

A frisky old storyteller named Darby O'Gill is desperately seeking the proverbial pot of gold. There's just one tiny little thing in his way: a 21 inch leprechaun named King Brian. But Darby must match his wits against the shrewd little trickster in order to get the gold.

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 Fascinating and spooky if you are a kid. 16 Sep 2001
By bernie TOP 1000 REVIEWER 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.

By A Customer

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.

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 A St. Pat's Day tradition 18 Mar 2004
Format:VHS Tape
My family and I treasure watching this film every St. Patrick's Day for its unabashed revelry in many things Irish. From the delightful fiddle-playing and singing, the celebration of leprachaun lore, the fantastical storytelling, the joy of small village living in old Ireland... this film enriches our family every year. Imagine trapping your own personal leprachaun- what would you wish for? The gentle wisdom of the whimsical Darby O'Gill charms all. He still reminds me of my own grandfather, and that alone makes the return viewing a joy.
