This week's classic movie pick is one of my all-time favorites, The Quiet Man. Since today is St. Patrick's Day, I thought it would be appropriate to feature this particular film. It's a delight from start to finish. The plot is simple, but there are all kinds of entertaining twists and turns. John Wayne plays an ex-boxer who retires to his roots in Ireland and searches for a proper wife. Maureen O'Hara plays the spunky lass who catches his eye.
There is an entire cast of lovable characters. John Wayne is handsome and bigger than life and Maureen O'Hara has never looked more beautiful and full of spirit. Directed by John Ford and also starring a favorite of mine, Barry Fitzgerald, this tribute to the Irish is a must-see for anyone who wants to escape for a time to a world of magical romance and enchantment.
