What is the movie The Quiet Man about?
John Ford’s 1952 romantic comedy “The Quiet Man” won him his 4th Academy Award for best director. Based on a short story published in the Saturday Evening Post, it tells the tale of Sean Thornton (John Wayne), an Irish-American from Pittsburgh traveling to Ireland to reclaim his family estate in Inisfree. There he quickly makes an enemy in “Red” Will Daneher (Victor McLaglen), a loud mouthed neighboring farmer angry that Sean outbid him for the Thornton farm. Sean also falls in love with his new nemesis’ sister Mary Kate (Maureen O’Hara), whom he intends to marry. Quite expectedly, Will objects to the marriage and refuses to allow it until he is tricked by the townsfolk into thinking that a wealthy widow he has set his sights on will agree to marry him, but only if Mary Kate is out of the household. The marriage goes through, but Will is enraged when he realizes he’s been duped and he refuses to give his sister her full dowry. Sean cares for none of it, but Mary Kate does, and with each passing day she grows more and more resentful at Sean for not sticking up to her brother and demanding she is given what is rightfully hers. Sean, once a professional boxer who accidentally killed an opponent in the ring, has vowed never to fight again, but the love of a good woman just might be enough for him to break his vows and take matters into his own hands.
