The Quiet Man – A Review

Featuring John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara. 

This has always been one of my favourites and gives us a chance to see John Wayne outside of the Western and War film genres.

It’s the story of a big American guy (boxer) returning to the homestead of his ancesters after he has killed a man in the ring.  Of course Hollywood has romantised Ireland as only Hollywood can but it is a good, feel good film, with lots of amusing bits and an enourmous punch up.  You will also find a clip of this film in E.T.

This is a good film that makes you smile and in this age of troubles a little bit of a smile can go a long way.
