The Quiet Man
Directed by John Ford, with John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara and Barry Fitzgerald
There are cinematic milestones that have left a marked impression on the landscapes in which they were filmed. John Ford's take on his idealized vision of Ireland, 'The Quiet Man', is one such film. When it was released 'The Quiet Man' wherein a retired American boxer returns to the village where he was born in Ireland where he finds love, became a monster hit all across the world and won Oscars for Best Director and Best Cinematography. Its impact went way beyond the Irish Diaspora and it has resonated with international audiences for over 50 years now.
John Ford Dreaming The Quiet Man delves into the story of the making of the film and features contributions from well known commentators and film makers including Peter Bogdanovich, Martin Scorsese, Jim Sheridan and, exclusively, Maureen O'Hara.
