Manny Pacheco on Hollywood’s Irish Mafia

Forgotten Hollywood’s Manny Pacheco tells little known stories about the large number of Irish working in Hollywood films, including John Wayne and director John Ford. Of course Celebrating Act 2 founder John Coleman does his bad Irish accent to the delight of his business partner, Art Kirsch. It’s all kicked off by a discussion of John Ford’s “The Quiet Man” featuring Wayne and Maureen O’Hara and covers all the great Irish-American character actors from Barry Fitzgerald to Victor McLaughlin.
