Synopsis

Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Paramount Pictures are bringing The Quiet Man to select cinemas on March 13 and 17, including exclusive insights from TCM. Celebrating 70 years, John Ford’s THE QUIET MAN is simply one of the greatest love stories ever told. John Wayne is retired boxer Sean Thornton who makes a pilgrimage to his home village in Ireland in order to claim his family’s estate. He meets his match in the spirited young Mary Kate Danaher (Maureen O’Hara) only to find himself confronted by her belligerent brother and the town’s strict customs. An Oscar winner for Best Director and Cinematography, this Republic Pictures classic lives on in the hearts of moviegoers and moviemakers alike.

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!

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.
