I’m also really looking forward to this too.  I think it will be perfect for S.T.  Patrick’s Day and I just love that picture you posted.  It’s very colorful and looks just like it does in the S.T.  Patrick’s Day type movies.  It also reminds me of Ireland.  I’ve never been there.  But some of my cousins and my Aunt and Uncle went there and just had a really wonderful time and I told one of my cousins the whole story about how Walt Disney actually came up with the Idea for Darby O Gail And The Little People.  Which is really neat.  Have they ever shown Tom Thumb as part of their S.T.  Patrick’s Day lineup before?

Thanks David. Nice comment. They air TOM THUMB at different times of the year. Can't recall if it's ever aired on St. Patrick's Day before.

Happy S.T.  Patrick’s Day TopBilled.  Yes I have.  I remember seeing Young Cassidy either last year.  The year before that or a few years ago and I’ve seen Finion’s Rainbow a few times.  I watch it every year here on TCM and I also watch TCM’s S.T.  Patrick’s Day theme here on TCM every year.  I really love it a whole lot.  How about you?

YOUNG CASSIDY is a good film. I'm glad FLIGHT OF THE DOVES has been scheduled this year.

I'm part-Irish (more German but still Irish). So it's a holiday I enjoy. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day, David!

You too TopBilled.  Enjoy the Special Theme Irish On Film here on TCM for S.T.  Patrick’s Day today and I hope you have a really wonderful S.T.  Patrick’s Day today.  Again.  Happy S.T.  Patrick’s Day.

There's one more night of films airing tomorrow. It seems odd to still be "celebrating" the Irish on TCM, two weeks after St. Patrick's Day. But I'm glad they choose to do this special theme.

Will they celebrate the Germans (non-Nazi representations) later when it's time for Oktoberfest...? :)

Thank you for reminding me that The Last Hurrah will be on TCM tomorrow. I had to change cable/dvr boxes, which meant giving up a lot of movies. I think The Last Hurrah is one of John Ford's masterpieces. On one level, I think the film is about the eclipse of the old Hollywood by the age of television. That wake -- that's John Ford's stock company mourning the old studio system.

And I love Edward Brophy in this scene.
