The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  Song o' My Heart
Many early films featured the Irish. This 1930's look at the Old Country centers around an Irish tenor. Irish tenors were ubiquitous at the time and are still popular today. (So many Irish musicians tour the world there are few to be found for St Patrick's day back in Ireland.) In our story the tenor, played by famous singer John McCormack, leaves for America and enjoys great success, but those left at home pine for his company. Ireland was poor yet still rich in culture. And sharing that culture meant leaving home and family, longing for the next letter from home. This film treats the Irish very favorably and maybe waxes a wee bit sentimental. Note young Maureen O'Sullivan as the daughter, Eileen. Link to reviews Click picture
