As much an anthropological adventure as a romantic rhapsody.

The film's saucy mix of comedy and melodrama is one of its greatest charms, although it can give you whiplash from time to time, especially if you're not used to Ford's brand of broad, back-slapping comedy

Highly endearing even as it shows its age... filled with gorgeous shots and without a single wasted frame.

Brilliantly photographed romantic comedy.

This is an amusing The Taming of the Shrew type comedy handled with a professional softness of touch by all concerned.

This is a robust romantic drama of a native-born's return to Ireland. Director John Ford took cast and cameras to Ireland to tell the story [by Maurice Walsh] against actual backgrounds.

John Ford's 1952 Oscar winner is a tribute to an Ireland that exists only in the imaginations of songwriters and poets like Ford.

One of John Ford's best pictures is also his most overtly romantic saga, set against picaresque Ireland, with top-notch turns from John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara.

Ford shot on location in Ireland in dazzling Technicolor (with bold, sparkling greens), and came up with one of his most enjoyable, full-bodied films.
