The Quiet Man VHS
Blarney and bliss, mixed in equal proportions. John Wayne plays an American boxer who returns to the Emerald Isle, his native land. What he finds there is a fiery prospective spouse (Maureen O'Hara) and a country greener than any Ireland seen before or since--it's no surprise The Quiet Man won an Oscar for cinematography. It also won an Oscar for John Ford's direction, his fourth such award.
It's a John Wayne classic. All the things you want in a movie; romance, drama, comedy, and a great story, all filmed in Ireland...it's a must see!
Troubled star of Shane and other classic films, Alan Ladd struck a chord with his three-dimensional characters and nonthreatening demeanor. Alan Ladd: The True Quiet Man explores his career and motivations through interviews with colleagues, footage from his films, and archival photos. Growing up poor and fatherless, he struggled to overcome the many obstacles to stardom but never fully believed himself worthy of his fame.
