YMMV / Darby O'Gill and the Little People

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Not EXACTLY, as everyone expects Disney characters to sing, but in retrospect. James Bond sings?
    • This has caused so much incredulity that there are people who believe that Connery's singing parts were dubbed by someone else.
    • James Bond does sing a single title line from "Underneath the Mango Tree" in "Dr. No". It was nothing compared with the singing in "Darby O'Gill".
  • Moment of Awesome: Darby O'Gill's response to opening the door and seeing the aforementioned terrifying Banshee screaming outside? He grabs a turf spade and tries to hit it, chasing it out into the yard even though it doesn't have a physical body. Now that's a Papa Wolf.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The damn banshee. When she first appears, she is combing her hair, something the Banshee in Irish legend was said to do when she approaches. And that sound she makes...
    • The Death Coach is also fearsome as we see it riding through the sky on its way to seize its prey. King Brian's warning doesn't help:
    King Brian: Once it has been called, it cannot return empty; and it is a power beyond me.
    • The scene on the hill at night where Darby's horse goes crazy, turns fluorescent glowing colors and attacks him, neighing shrilly all the while and ultimately knocking Darby down a well deserves a very Honorable Mention.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The leprechauns are integrated so seamlessly into the film, after a while you'd think they were real.
