Albert Sharpe Movies and Career Information
Apr 15, 1885
Albert Sharpe (15 April 1885 - 13 February 1970) was an Irish stage and film actor. His most famous roles were those of Disney's Darby O'Gill and the Little People and as Finian McLonergan in the Broadway stage production of the musical Finian's Rainbow. (The stage production differed from the film by not having Finian sing at all; the film version, made in 1968, had Fred Astaire in the role and allowed him both to sing and to dance.) He was also a member of the Abbey Players. His last ten years were spent in retirement. He died in 1970 in Belfast at the age of 84.
