Song more notable than the drama
11 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very Irish production. In fact there is a sequence of kids doing Irish Dance in this which is exactly the same as is still done with kids today. As far as I know, this is the first television presentation of Irish Dance that I have seen.

The title song was sung live for this show by a young singer named Merv Griffin who would go on to create Wheel of Fortune & do afternoon talk shows. He had a buffet named after him in Atlantic City. While it is a nice song, like the drama presentation it is not real memorable.

The introduction on the Criterion DVD is more interesting than the actual show. Seems that Julie Harris co-star fell in love with her doing the show. He readily admits it even though both of them were married at the time.

Would say if your Irish, this show might have have more interest than a general viewer. Still it is a decent program especially considering the live aspect of the performances.
