About the Movie

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.
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.
Fresh: As much an anthropological adventure as a romantic rhapsody.
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.
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.
I have always loved this movie, not too many old movies have held my attention but this one is great! Thanks iTunes!
