The 250 and When Irish Eyes Are Watching are crossing over for a St. Patrick's Day treat. Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon. Barry Lyndon is the epic story of the eponymous character, a dashing Irish rogue who seems to bumble his way through the eighteenth century. Using nothing but his wits, Barry manages to manipulate his way to the fame and fortune that he so covets, only to discover a fortune won is not so easily kept. At time of recording, it was ranked the 225th best movie of all time on the Internet Movie Database.
