    ITEM#: 2502876

    John Ford cast former matinee idol Tyrone Power against type in the true story of Marty Maher, a humble Irish immigrant who rose through the ranks to become one of West Point's most revered instructors. Arriving at the hallowed military academy near the turn of the 20th century, Maher first gets a job as a cafeteria dishwasher but realizes that the enlisted men receive better treatment and quickly becomes one. The life of military discipline is no easier for the Irishman, and he soon finds himself in the guardhouse after getting in a fight with an officer he mistakenly accuses of a crime. Upon his release, Capt. Herman Koehler (Ward Bond), who saw the fight and admired his pugilistic skill, offers Marty a job as the school's boxing coach. Koehler also introduces him to the quiet Irish-born cook, Mary (Maureen O'Hara), who will become his wife. As the years pass, Marty's role expands beyond his place in the athletic department as he gradually becomes one of the most beloved characters in the school's history, a second father to thousands of grateful cadets. This warmly sentimental, typically Fordian tribute to a life of service--the director's first film following a year off because of eye surgery--features a fine performance by Power as the volatile, big hearted Hibernian.

    • Movie about West Point tradition

      Purchased this dvd for my grandson who just received an appointment to West Point. Saw this movie when I was a young girl and it made an impression on me back then. My grandson said he was at West Point last summer and it still looks the same as it did in the movie. The only thing that seems to have changed are the hats worn by the cadets. A very heartwarming, feel good movie.

    • This is one of my favorite films of all times and I am 62 years old. It is beautifully filmed with wonderful scenery as a background for a warm-hearted, involving story. The actors are wonderful and their characterisations totally believable. I must have seen this film at least 15 times and adore it each time that I do.
