Come on Over is the saga of an Irish-American family. What's past is prologue in this case, as the trials and tribulations of earlier generations dictate the behavior of the contemporary family members. Colleen Moore heads the cast as the spirited Moyna Killea. The other character names sound like a 1910 NYPD roll call: O'Mealia, Morahan, Carmody, Dugan etc. As usual, the only people we're allowed to dislike are stuffed shirts who look down upon the Hibernian heroes and heroines. Come on Over was written by Rupert Hughes, the uncle of zillionaire Howard Hughes.
