Rondo Remembers - St. Patrick's Day at the Theater

A lot of holiday's have many fond memories. Of course you may remember various Christmases over the years with big gifts both receiving and giving. Sure, the people that read this column may remember many cool Halloweens. When we would have a great costume or some Trick-or-Treat incident that still stands out. Maybe a special Valentine Day with a special someone. But, I've found that St. Patrick's Day is fun...but, outside of maybe making green shamrocks by cutting construction paper in elementary school..there aren't many stand-out memories of that holiday. I do remember learning about the legend of leprechauns in second grade and thinking that was cool. However, there is one St. Patrick's Day weekend I'll never forget.

It had to be 1964 or 1965 when I was about five or six years old. My baby sister was, most likely, being watched by my grandparents when my mom did something special for me. She tool me to the movies at a place called The Guthrie Theater in Grove City, PA. In honor of St. Patrick's Day week they had brought in the re-issue of the Disney film DARBY O'GILL AND THE LITTLE PEOPLE (originally released in 1959/1960).

Now, as it seems in many cases when I was young, my mom underestimated the scare factor that might be involved. Heck, it was a Disney film for goodness sake. It was about a young man and his mixing up with leprechauns. It had all the appearances for something you should take your young children to.

If you've ever seen DARBY O'GILL AND THE LITTLE people, you'll know where this is going. The last, maybe 20 minutes, feature a flying "Death Coach," a glowing hideous banshee and the good-hearted, lovable Darby O'Gill sacrificing himself to Death. Whoah. This is heavy stuff that was accomplished by amazingly scary special effects. This romantic comedy-drama quickly turned to all-out horror.

There I was hunched down in my theater seat, frightened and loving it! I'm sure my mom was thinking that maybe this wasn't a good idea for young "Ronnie." It was probably just another cog that led me down the path of liking monster movies! I loved it. Although it probably was the catalyst for some nightmares over the next few months.

I think I'll have to view good ol' DARBY O'GILL AND THE LITTLE PEOPLE again this year to see Sean Connery, Janet Munro, Albert Sharpe (as Darby) and a glowing banshee. Thank you Mom, miss ya.
