Jack and Sally Together Again! :)

Happy Saint Patrick's Day Everyone!

In honor of St. Paddy's day, TDS presents another bit of ephemera from Jack Kelly's 1952 film, Sally and Saint Anne, a comedy about the O'Moynes, a wacky but loveable Irish-American family:

This rare window card isn't in the best shape. It's browned and faded with age (it's 65 years old). It's also badly creased in spots. And poor Grandpa O'Moyne  (Edmund Gwenn) has a hole in his nightshirt! But, the graphics are still colorful and, of course, JK is up there in the family portrait.

Below is a close-up of JK as muddling magician "Mike O'Moyne" beside his mother (played by Frances "Aunt Bee" Bavier, complete with rolling pin):

Much more about Sally can be found here and here.

And, radio station WJCU is again streaming 18 hours of authentic Irish music, starting at 6:00 am ET this morning (3/17) and ending at midnight. The link to listen is here. Enjoy!

Please stay tuned for more movie memories with JK and TDS.
