TOM JONES (1963)

A movie set in the 1700s, released in the early 1960s, that still feels startlingly modern today. I absolutely loved it. Why did no one tell me this movie was so good? He said about the Oscar winner.

DARBY O’GILL AND THE LITTLE PEOPLE (1959)

A silly but more charming than you might expect live-action Disney movie involving leprechauns, banshees, and Sean Connery.

THE QUIET MAN (1952)

John Wayne romances Maureen O’Hara against a backdrop so stereotypically Irish, you might puke.
