[The script] tends to resolve its problems by having the cast embrace, fraternity-brother fashion, and break out into full-throated ballads.

Another insanely overrated "classic" which no one can remember why was once given such praise.

The illusion/reality theme underlying immigrant boxer Wayne's return from America to County Galway is soon swamped within a vibrant community of stage-Irish 'types'.

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

Although not a true classic, The Quiet Man is worth more than a cursory glance, especially for those who like Wayne or would like to experience more of his work.

Maureen O'Hara, born in Ireland, was never more ravishing than here on her home ground.

As much an anthropological adventure as a romantic rhapsody.

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.

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.

One of the greatest love stories of all time. Ford's direction is brilliant; O'Hara is beautiful; the cinematography is dazzling, and the brawl between Wayne and McLaglan at the finale is a comic treasure. A must-see.
