The Quiet Man: 60th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray

SKU ID #432885
$29.95
Newly re-mastered in HD from a 4K SCAN of the ORIGINAL NEGATIVE. John Ford's The Quiet Man celebrates one of Hollywood's most romantic and enduring epics. The first American feature to be filmed in Ireland's picturesque countryside… Ford richly imbued this masterpiece with his love of Ireland and its people. Sean Thornton (John Wayne) in an American boxer who swears off fighting after he accidentally kills an opponent in the ring. Returning to the Irish town of his youth, he purchases the home of his birth and finds happiness when he falls in love with the fiery Mary Kate (Maureen O'Hara). But her insistence that Sean conduct his courtship in a proper Irish manner with matchmaker Barry Fitzgerald along for the ride as "chaperone" is but one obstacle to their future happiness: the other is her brother (Victor McLaglen), who spitefully refuses to give his consent to their marriage, or to honor the tradition of paying a dowry to the husband. Sean could care less about dowries, he would've punched out the bullying McLaglen long ago if he hadn't sworn off fighting. But when Mary Kate accuses him of being a coward and walks out on him, Sean is finally ready to take matters into his own hands, the resulting fistfight erupts into the longest brawl ever filmed, followed by one of the most memorable reconciliations in movie history! The Quiet Man won a total of two Academy Awards® including Best Director (Ford) and Best Cinematography and received five more nomination including Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (McLaglen).

        This is classic film making at it's best, and sure Wayne and O'Harra shine but If you take your eyes and ears off of Barry Fitzgerald you're short sheeting yourself.
        Next to his performance in Going my Way, Fitzgerald stumbles and wise cracks his way into your heart. I highly recommend both of these film classics!!

            Just a wonderful love story with lots of moments of comedy. Fantastic cast of characters and the setting is beautiful. This movie is the reason "visiting Ireland" is on my bucket list.If you have not seen it, I HIGHLY recommend it. You will not be disappointed. You too will fall in love with the Wayne and O'Hara and Ireland.

            This is my favorite movie of ALL TIME. Maureen O'Hara has said it herself, that this was and is her favorite movie of ALL TIME, that she has played in. John Wayne is her ALL TIME favorite actor that she has played opposite with in all her movies.

              A classic movie and perhaps the best thing John Wayne ever did. He was more himself in this, not the swaggering cowboy or intrepid war hero.

                              John Wayne pictures are some my favorites.
                              Although Wayne and O'Hara had always produced considerable electricity
                              which make their pictures very entertaining
