This was the first time I saw this on the big screen; saw it first on TV and it's been my favourite movie ever since. Seeing it on the big screen so justified it being awarded an Oscar for cinematography!

Went the AMC in Disney Springs on Sunday 3/13. The movie did not play for over an hour and then played with terrible focus and had lines running through it. The box office refunded their price, so I lost over $6 on the refund. The AMC will not defund the Atom charges. I'll just buy the tickets directly from the box office for now on. Why pay extra?

The Quiet Man is one of mine and my mother's favorites. It was a treat to watch it on the big screen! We had a minor hiccup in the viewing. The projector stopped and the manager had to come fix it, other than that it was great!

I've seen this movie multiple times but only on the small screen. And it's been about 10 years since my last viewing. It was great to see the scenery on the big screen and all of the transitions which are usually cut out for time on television. I sitll love the story and is the only John Wayne movie I can stomach; however, it doesn't age well as it has a few moments which are a little cringe worthy. But I still enjoyed it.

We've changed a lot in 70 years. The actions of John Wayne in bringing his new wife back to her brother would be considered abuse now, but the Quiet Man had just had enough. Good movie. Long.

I've only seen this on television up to now. This viewing on the big screen really was so much more enjoyable.

One of my favorite John Wayne movies. It's a shame that the Theaters don't do anything special to promote these special movies. Especially since this showing was near and on St. Patrick's Day.

Metacritic

100

The most purely enjoyable of all the great Ford films. [18 Sep 1998, p.J]

The Quiet Man showcases [Wayne] as the leading man in an old fashioned romantic drama. Cast against type, Wayne pulls it off with aplomb, largely because his tremendous screen presence allows him to get away with gaffes that would sink other actors.

If it’s an ungainly variety, it doesn’t suggest directorial sloppiness, but the warmth of oral tradition as it dances around a cluster of themes (belonging, redemption, reconciliation) with the vigor of a yarn spun, porter in hand, alongside an open fire.
