The Mitchum boys, Robert and John were of Irish decent. Of course Robert was the most well known but I met John at a gathering in Corona del Mar in the 80's. When he found out my mother (not Irish) named me Kathleen from the song, Carry Me Home Again, Kathleen, he broke into song added about 10 verses to the original. Talk about having kissed the Blarney Stone, ol' John had plenty of blather but it was an entertaining evening.
