The Quiet Man: 60th Anniversary Edition DVD

SKU ID #432893
$24.95
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).

        Comments about this product:

        This is one of the most beautiful love stories I've ever seen. The old world customs a man and woman must follow for courtship and marriage are inspiring. Women having a dowry with a fortune seemed to say that she is an equal partner in the marriage, but she still must obey her husband. The late Maureen O'Hara and John Wayne had chemistry. They gave the movie the feel of what marriage is all about. The citizens and the religious beliefs are also a prevailing theme in the movie. This is a great one!

        I show the movie in my home. The story is great.

        The coloring is not as clear as it should be.

        The remastering is not as good as other DVDs that I have purchased.

              Comments about this product:

              I absolutely love both these actors but this movie is still one of my favorites. I have seen it so many times I can't count and enjoyed it each time equally. I miss actors like them and clean entertainment. There is so few movies made that aren't about sex, evil, murder, incess, graft, crooked politians and all the bad things that are out there. There isn't enough wholesome movies that lift your spirit, make you laugh, make you feel good about people and include God.

                  I decided to buy this movie after reading Maureen O'Hara's autobiography. I can see why "The Quiet Man" was her favorite. She had fun doing it! The scenery in Ireland was fantastic, the music; singing was great and the romance between her and John Wayne was the best. I didn't know they were close friends till I read her book. They complemented each other in the movie.

                              It is unfortunate that the extra on the making of the Quiet Man is the same that was used in the 40th anniversary video tape. I was hoping for new material.

                              This was bought for a gift. Was disappointed with the disk freezing

                              Not the best sound quality

                              This is a great remember-why-you-fell-in-love-with-your-spouse-in-the-first-place movie. Five stars for the movie, two stars for the quality of the recording, picture is not great, and in places the sound is pretty awful. My family doesn't care because they know the lines by heart and overlook all faults, but I expected better quality from TCM. All said, if this is the best recording out there, we'll take it. But disappointing...

                                My family really enjoyed this movie and it will become a favorite to watch on St Patricks' Day. But great for any time of the year.
