If today's TV and movies are not your thing and you want to go back to Hollywood's golden age with an Irish-American star, 20th Century Fox has just released a boxed DVD set titled The Tyrone Power Matinee Idol Collection. A star through the 1930s and 1940s, Power was a great-grandson to the acclaimed Irish actor of the same name. Power's films include The Luck of the Irish, in which he plays a newspaperman who becomes pals with a leprechaun (played by Cecil Kellaway). The film was made with a green tint to lend authenticity to scenes set in Ireland.
The Tyrone Power Matinee Idol Collection also includes early films such as Love Is News, Caf Metropole and Second Honeymoon (all with Loretta Young) and later films such as Prince of Foxes and Nightmare Alley.
Sadly, Power died in 1958, following a heart attack, when he was just 44.
