Luck o' the Irish: None of the principal players involved in the making of this 1992 film -- Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Ron Howard -- are Irish themselves (although we don't have time to research their genealogies), but they were big stars! And big stars can play Irish! The film told the epic story of a young couple who leaves Ireland for a free plot of land in Oklahoma. Music was provided by Enya! The take-away: If Nicole Kidman were Irish, she'd look more horsey, less put-together, and more beautiful.
