The Quiet ManNR

Poster of The Quiet Man

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.”) Rated G
