Trivia that mentions this person:
Juno and the Paycock [1930]
  • Debut of Barry Fitzgerald.
    Ernest Goes to Jail [1990]
  • Among the famous eccentric actors whom Ernest imitates in jail when trying out for "Mr. Nash", are James Cagney, Walter Brennan, Humphrey Bogart, Barry Fitzgerald, Sylvester Stallone, and James Mason. Of those, Stallone is the only one who was not a classic one at the time. He is the only actor who was still alive and who was still acting in movies during and after the time this movie was made.
    Darby O'Gill and the Little People [1959]
  • Walt Disney was initially hoping to cast Barry Fitzgerald in the dual roles of Darby O'Gill and King Brian. Fitzgerald reportedly declined due to his advanced age (although his eventual replacement as Darby, Albert Sharpe, was three years his senior). Disney regretted the loss of Fitzgerald in the lead role, and blamed the film's disappointing box-office performance partly on this loss.
