'50s Disney tale set in Ireland has drinking, some violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Darby O'Gill and the Little People is a 1959 Disney movie in which an elderly man from a small Irish village tries to get three wishes from the king of the leprechauns. While mostly a wholesome and somewhat dated movie (with a young Sean Connery), the drinking will be of concern for some. In one scene, Darby and King Brian engage in an epic whiskey drinking contest, trading drinks of whiskey and witty verse until King Brian is unable to move. A pub fight between two rivals breaks out, with fists and broken bottles. Darby's fanciful stories take place in the village pub, where pub-goers drink stout and whiskey, and some in the background smoke pipes. A character offers another a pinch of snuff. Some scenes of a banshee, and of a death coach, may be a bit much for younger and more sensitive viewers, as well as a scene in which one of the characters threatens to throw another into the water "like a kitten."
