May the Road Rise Up to Meet You...

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m especially fond of this holiday because I do have more than a little Irish blood, something that an inordinate number of people in the U.S. can claim. In fact, it seems that, on March 17, everyone claims to be Irish. Why else would they be chugging all the green beer?

In choosing these movies, I decided to concentrate on the romantic image that we have of Ireland and why we have fun celebrating every St. Paddy’s Day.

Kathryn Grayson (1922-2010)

The lovely Kathryn Grayson died last week at the age of 88. Grayson was a mainstay of MGM in the 1950s, playing the lead in several of the studio’s best musicals. She made her movie debut in Andy Hardy’s Private Secretary, part of the series starring Mickey Rooney. Her beautiful soprano voice was showcased in classic movies such as Anchors Aweigh, opposite Gene Kelly.
