The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  The Daughter of Rosie O'Grady
There was a time when Irish 'hoofers' were ubiquitous. Think George M. Cohan and James Cagney (before he played gangsters). Tony Paster was an impresario in the second half of the 19th century. He was noted for featuring acts that drew in mixed couple audiences calling it "family theater." (Music halls were once a predominantly male venue.) Here June Haver and Gordon MacRae play a song and dance duo that travels with the Tony Pastor Vaudeville show. They capture the very essence of the Irish hoofers in their heyday. She is, as the title suggests, the daughter of a famous stage personality. Much like Three Cheers for the Irish the film features a cantankerous Irish single father with three daughters. And, in both films one daughter marries a policeman. Link to reviews Click picture
