I fondly remember this one from seeing it on TV in the 1960s. Nice little Cinderella story of sorts, with a bit of the Blarney thrown in for some fun laughs. Nice characters. Good human interest plot, with the running subplot of amateur athlete (Rugby?) Rooney's attracting the mature landladies, which requires him to constantly find new lodgings. New lodgings involve him with the drama of the family of the house, and therein lies the story, and the romance. John Gregson makes a good strong lead, and Barry Fitzgerald adds his usual bit of Irish magic. Good solid performances from the supporting cast. This is a classic fun movie, and it is a shame it is not available on DVD or video.
