The Quiet Man


Dir. John Ford. 1952, 129 mins. Archival 35mm print. With John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara, Barry Fitzgerald. Ford—born John Martin Feeney—once again returned to his Irish roots in the sumptuously photographed The Quiet Man. Sean Thornton (John Wayne), an ex-heavyweight from Pittsburgh, returns to his ancestral home in the Irish countryside, where he gets the fight of his life from strong-willed local girl Mary Kate Danaher (Maureen O’Hara) who is every bit his equal.
