THE QUIET MAN took years to finance but became one of his greatest box-office successes and an enduringly beloved classic. John Wayne stars as Sean Thornton, a retired American boxing champion trying to put tragedy behind him by returning to Innisfree, the bucolic Irish village of his birth. He purchases his birthplace from its current owner, enraging the wealthy and bellicose Red Will Danaher (Victor McLaglen), who had designs on the property. On arriving at his cottage, Thornton finds it being swept out by Mary Kate Danaher (Maureen O'Hara), a redheaded vision from whom he steals a not completely unwelcome kiss. After engaging in a subterfuge involving a horse race, some of the locals manage to get the disgruntled Red Will to allow his sister to be courted by the American. But the courtship ritual of the village is only the first of many local practices that the bewildered Thornton must endure if he is to have Mary Kate. Wayne gives a surprisingly nuanced performance as the fish out of water, and he is perfectly matched with the radiantly rambunctious O'Hara. The rest of the cast is splendid as well, and the lush color photography garnered an Academy Award for Winston Hoch. John Ford also won an Oscar for his directing, and it's impossible not to be charmed by the artistry with which he weaves his rollicking, robust tale.

  • wonderful quality--great price, arrived in perfect

    Being a John Wayne fan I would recomend this movie to anyone who hasn't seen it and to the ones who have like myself by all means buy a copy of it. It's almost impossible to find and if you do they want an outragious price for it. I'm very pleased with quality and will watch it often.

  • The Quiet Man

    John Ford bought the rights to this story he first read in a magazine, had a script developed and some of his favorites - John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara, Victor McLaghlen and Barry Fitzgerald - to tell the story of a man Irish-born, but taken to America when small, who returns to his ancestral home and finds love and community, but not without a fight. Behind the camera, it's a real family gathering - members of John Ford's, John Wayne's, Maureen O'Hara's and Barry Fitzgerald's family also have speaking roles, and Andrew McLaghlen, Victor's son, is working off-camera. The result is a beautiful film that could move a heart of stone, and just about my favorite film of all time. This is a 10 out of 10!!!
