  • Last night we were flicking through the channels on TV and both my husband and I like John Wayne movies
  • The best part of the movie is when Mary Kate pretends to leave Sean because her brother is withholding her dowry, and she doesn't feel right because of the custom that the dowry be bestowed upon the husband, anyway, John Wayne rides this big black stallion to the train station, grabs, his wife by her arm and walks he back 5 miles to give her back to her brother, all the while, picking up the villages to watch the fight between Sean and her brother

      Last night we were flicking through the channels on TV and both my husband and I like John Wayne movies. We came across the Quiet Man, and that is where we stayed.

      Old movies, done well whether they are in black and white or in color are sometimes so refreshing to watch. The Quiet man is one of those classic movies that you can watch over and over again.

      John


      Wayne plays Sean Thornton, a former boxer from Pittsburgh, PA, he is troubled because he caused the accidental death in a boxing match. He quits boxing and decides to return to his parents Ireland, to get away from his path for greed and money. He finds himself almost taken back into time, where life is easier, slower paced and the people are not as money hungry as they were in America. He meets Mary Kate (played by Marueen Sullivan). Most of John Wayne’s movie kept the same cast members just playing different roles. He finds that Irish customs differ greatly from American customs, courting, betrothals, matchmaking and dowries are all part of the Irish scene.

      The movie is simple in nature, bright vivid colors and takes you back to a time when movies were majestic in nature. I loved this movie,


      • The Quiet Man  (movie)
      it is one of my favorites. The Irish music sung in the local Pub, the Catholic father, the Protestant Clergy, the simple lives of the people and how they interact with each other allows you to remember a less exhausting time. The best part of the movie is when Mary Kate pretends to leave Sean because her brother is withholding her dowry, and she doesn’t feel right because of the
      custom that the dowry be bestowed upon the husband, anyway, John Wayne rides this big black stallion to the train station, grabs, his wife by her arm and walks he back 5 miles to give her back to her brother, all the while, picking up the villages to watch the fight between Sean and her brother. Absolutely delightful movie.
