About the Movie

A tired American ex-boxer returns to his native hamlet in Ireland to win the hand of a spirited young woman. He is confronted by strict local customs and the woman's belligerent brother. Set in the verdant Irish countryside, this lively film has beautiful scenery, brilliant repartee, and local charm.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Let's face it. Mr. Ford is in love with Ireland, as is his cast, and they give us a fine, gay time while they're about it. – A.H. Weiler, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: This is a robust romantic drama of a native-born's return to Ireland. Director John Ford took cast and cameras to Ireland to tell the story [by Maurice Walsh] against actual backgrounds. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: As much an anthropological adventure as a romantic rhapsody. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Dec 5, 2016

Fresh: Although not a true classic, The Quiet Man is worth more than a cursory glance, especially for those who like Wayne or would like to experience more of his work. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jul 7, 2010

Exquisite (perfect) Film Conversion

I have been waiting for this classic "must have" film ever since iTunes got started and it's finally here…buy it quick before it disappears. The sound and video are exquisitely sharp, clean & crisp especially when viewed on a 27" Apple Thunderbolt display


I remember watching this film with my dad a few times, and I really enjoyed it. Thank God that this is finally on iTunes so I can watch it at school without commandeering the VHS player at my house. Worth paying the money to own as opposed to renting — it’s just that much of a classic.

Love it...

I have always loved this movie, not too many old movies have held my attention but this one is great! Thanks iTunes!
