The Quiet Man - 70th Anniversary
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.
