Great old movie. Fine performances from both
Wayne and O'Hara plus one of Hollywood's classic fist fights set in the beautiful Irish countryside.

How To Make Irish Eyes Smile...

TITLE: The Quiet Man
GENRE: Romantic Comedy, Irish Ethnicity
CAST: John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara, Victor McLaglen, Barry Fitzgerald, Ward Bond, Mildred Natwick, Francis Ford, Arthur Shields, Eileen Crowe, Charles Fitzsimmons, James (Fitzsimmons) Lilburn, Sean McClory and four Wayne Children
PLOT: An Irishman returns home from America and must learn to cope with the folkways of the old sod. He falls in love but is prevented from a realization of success there by the ways of courting. He then has to battle the ways of marriage and a big brother in law.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 9 of 10: This movie is one which made cinematographers the world over want to film Irish landscapes and do better than this Oscar Cinematography winner. Wayne and O'Hara express so much love in all their ventures together but those others were mostly about the other parts of the story. Here, the love is the story. They are simply among the top five romantic couples in Hollywood history. The music is mostly Irish folk tunes. There are a few references to the struggle for Irish independence, but they play no major role in the tale. Wayne's skill with the equines from his years as a cowboy are displayed in a famous steeplechase race. The dialogue is a wonderful mix of character development and Irish old wives sayings for the humor they bring (Pay attention, these bits of Irish wit fly off the screen at incredible speed)
DVD BONUS: Lots here to explore. An M. O'Hara overdubbed commentary, a Roger Matlin review and critique , a making of... documantary, trailers, filmographies, production notes...
ADDED NOTES: The use of so many family members in the cast (John Ford, the Director, used his brother Francis, Miss O'Hara's two brothers are in it, one in a major role and he also was the film's Irish attorney, arranging all the contracts and liscenses, B.Fitzgerald and his brother, A. Shields, play bookie against a protestant minister in a wonderful juxtaposition and the youths surrounding O'Hara during the horse race are Wayne's children) help bring the story of love to life in this production.
