QUIET MAN, THE
(NR) - 2 hr. 9 min.
Just in time for St. Patrick's Day. This classic love story set in Ireland earned director John Ford his fourth Academy Award. John Wayne plays a former American boxer who falls in love with fiery redhead Maureen O'Hara, but her obstinate brother (Victor McLaglen) stands in their way. Wayne and McLaglen come to blows in a rousing climax peppered with witty trash talk and grudging respect. ("Your widow—me sister—she could've done a lot worse.”)
Directed by John Ford; Starring John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara, Barry Fitzgerald, Ward Bond, Victor McLaglen, Arthur Shields, Eileen Crowe, Mildred Natwick.
