If you have a drop of Irish blood, if you’ve ever worn green on St. Patrick’s Day, if you’re a simply a fan of musical bio-pics chockablock with nostalgic song and dance, sure and begorrah you’re in for a Technicolor treat. My Wild Irish Rose stars Golden Age of Hollywood tenor Dennis Morgan as turn-of-the-century tenor Chauncey Olcott, who brought When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, Mother Machree and more beloved classics to eager theater audiences. Olcott’s rise from tugboat skipper to minstrel man, to star and composer, his relationships with two women – Lillian Russell (Andrea King) and true love Rose Donovan (Arlene Dahl in her first credited screen role) – and an Oscar®-nominated musical score made this tuneful tale a box-office hit.
