Garland plays dual roles: Irish immigrant Nellie and her daughter, Little Nellie. Both contend with the same cantankerous coot, the laze-about father who fusses mightily when Nellie marries and then years later when Little Nellie falls in love.
In this whimsical bit o' blarney from George M. Cohan's 1922 hit, Judy Garland plays dual roles: plucky Irish immigrant Nellie (Judy's first grownup part) and her daughter, Little Nellie. Both Nellies contend with the same cantankerous coot, the laze-about father (Charles Winninger) who fusses mightily when Nellie marries an upstanding lad (George Murphy) and repeats the process years later when Little Nellie falls in love. Radiant and winning, Garland sings "It's a Great Day for the Irish," "Singin' in the Rain" and more classic tunes. But the film's finest moment may be the heartrending hospital scene in which Garland's touching, emotionally subtle performance gives promise of the superb dramatic actress she would become.
Judy Garland portrays two characters in this Irish classic: Colleen, a mother who dies while having a child; and Nellie Kelly, the daughter of Colleen. Nellie patches up a feud between her father and grandfather.
