The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  Irish Luck
What's in a name? A lot if it's an Irish name. The unspoken theme here is that, for decades, having an Irish name in the US could get you the-bum-rap. In our story a murder has been committed. Our hero, an Irish bellhop, automatically assumes that the Irish suspect, if taken in by the police, will take the fall for the crime. Do we still think that way today? I think we do, only other nationalities have replaced the Irish as the usual suspects. Note that, at the making of this film, many bellhops were Irish. Frank McCourt was a bellhop in NYC before he became a teacher. Link to reviews Click picture
