Darby O'Gill and the Little People
Darby O'Gill and the Little People is a Disney film released in 1959 set in rural Ireland at the beginning of the 19th century. Based on the books of Herminie Templeton Kavanagh, the film features leprechauns and a banshee.
Actor Cyril Cusack and Irish Chief Justice (later president) Cearbhall Ó Dálaigh picketed its launch in Dublin due to what they felt was ridiculous stereotyping of the Irish people. This film has been little-seen or promoted by the Disney organization in recent years, possibly for this reason.
