Storyline

It had been forty years since Richard, James and Theodore insulted The O'Monahan and he put a vexing blessing on them. All three have obtained their dreams of grandeur, but they all live in a single house as bachelors. Into this grand house comes 7 year old Sheila with a request that these three become her guardians. But they do not want her and let her leave until they find that they need the property that Sheila has inherited. They then take her, and O'Davern, into the house with the expressed intention of relieving Sheila of her property so that they can donate it to the University in their name and buy remembrance in the future. But Sheila cannot sell the property because of the 'little people'. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

MGM Classic
7 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This deserves a ten on the IMDB scale. It's a superb film about hope, love, and blarney. This is Margaret O'Brien's finest film effort, and she is backed by skilled MGM veterans. Why on earth this isn't available, is beyond me. Watch for showings on TCM and get out your video recorder.
