And Who taught you to be playing patty fingers in the holy water?
And who gave you leave to be kissin' me?
As I've said before "The Quiet Man" was the feel good movie of my high school time as an usherette (remember them?) -No other movie was cheered & applauded as this one was. Three return engagements & SRO. I can't tell you the number of people who demanded to know what Barry said when he spied the broken bed.The expression on his face caused such laughter his line was lost.
Maureen O'Hara in an interview on Bravo told of the night She & Wayne went to John Ford's house for dinner. Wayne got blotto & Ford insisted she take him home, Not knowing where he lived (strange) she decided to take him to his country club. On the way he revived in the car. There was a house in the distance, she thought--it must be his home. She pulled in the driveway & Wayne stumble out. Knocked on the door. A lady opened the door and Wayne said,"I want a drink." He took a few steps in, the lady ran to the kitchen, came out with a glass & a bottle. Poured him a good stiff drink of whiskey, he downed it, turned on his heel & left. The lady never said a word.
