There is a new official website for fans of the John Ford classic film, "The Quiet Man". I think there will be some of you mudcatters who would be interested.



There is also a nice piece on the film's theme song "The Isle Of Innisfree" by Gerard Farrelly, son of the writer. Just click the link "Isle of Innisfree" on the home page.

Yes, a wonderfully entertaining film. It's a love story really, and quite sensual without having to show it all like they have to do today to achieve the same affect. Great sparks too between John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. It's main theme music, "The Isle Of Innisfree", is stunning. I would die happy if I could leave the world such a melody, incidentally, Victor Young orchestrated it beautifully.

Thanks for the website info.

I can never help being blown away by the Duke's dramatic use of cigarettes in his "method" acting in this flick. Watch how many times he lights a smoke, takes one drag, looks intensely away at nothing in particular, then tosses most of the cig away angrily.

The film was made on location in Cong, County Mayo, and in the countryside to the immediate west, County Galway's "Joyce Country." There is a Quiet Man Museum in Cong, and some of the film's locations (e.g., the pub) are still there to be visited.

I rented the DVD from Netflix.com a couple of months ago, and the quality seemed perfectly fine to me. My only (minor) complaint was the absense of any extra features, but that's not unusual for old classic films transferred to DVD. Ron, sounds like you got a bad copy, or maybe some kind of bootleg; hope you got your money back!

Cluin, I can't tell whether you're serious or facetious in your praise of JW's "cigarette acting." Stanislavsky decried the employment of smokes as a cheap short-cut and a way to avoid more genuine emotionally-grounded acting, but it was a commonly employed theatrical trick in the 1950's heyday of The Method.

Sorry to correct you Sorcha, but the soundtrack contains many pieces of Irish music, e.g. "Galway Bay", "The Wild Colonial Boy", "The Rakes of Mallow", "The Kerry Dances", to name but a few. There are also several pieces of incidental music written for the film by Victor Young, e.g. "The Race", and "The Fight".

However, the film's principle musical theme is "The Isle of Innisfree", of that there is no doubt. It's the film's Main Title and is first heard over the opening credits sequence and is featured a further 11 times throughout the movie.

Some of the scenes in which it is heard are - when John Wayne sees Maureen for the first time as she is walking along with sheep, the love scene in the graveyard, and I could go on and on. Indeed I have some albums of film themes along with the soundtrack CD of the film and it is always refered to as the theme music of The Quiet Man. It is the one composition which stands out above all the others, the one that opens the film and the one that is given the greatest amount of exposure throughout.

I have a special interest in the whole area of film music and work in the area of music copyright, and licensing.

I should have mentioned in my posting that recently the composer John Williams revealed his own indebtedness to the musical judgement of John Ford, and it was Ford himself who chose the Isle of Innisfree as his film's main theme music.

Williams first saw The Quiet Man shortly after its release in 1952 and was inspired by the Victor Young score, and as he said himself, the passionate and romantic Isle Of Innisfree by Richard Farrelly, saying these were the major inspirations for his own hugely successful career.

Wasn't there a thread on the subject of this film's theme music and it's uncredited composer earlier this year? I'm pretty sure I remember reading about it either before or very shortly after my trip to Ireland in August. I'm confident that someone with more time, energy, and/or anal-retentiveless than myself will soon come up with a solid reference or link.

Unless I've lost my mind completely, here's what I remember:

The late songwriter's son made an unexpected apeparance as a GUEST, well into the ongoing discussion, and provided a link to further information on the web. His dad's name appeared nowhere in the film credits, leading to the misunderstanding that the one person with a visible music credit (the composer of the overall score) was the writer of each invidiual tune in the film, which is manifestly untrue since many of the numbers were and are traditional/PD.

The son assured us, however, that the movie studio *did* pay regular and substantial royalties to his father even though they didn't provide public recogntion via a screen credit.

Did I dream all this? Or am I perhaps confusing this with some other B&W Hollywood classic featuring Irish traditional music? I think not...

I have such a detestation of John Wayne that it is hard for me to watch the film. Of all the films that get re-made I wish this one would. I don't know who I would cast in it but Daniel Day Lewis is a contender along with Liam Neeson. I'm sure there are other, more properly Irish actors, who would do a grand job but I am unaware of who they would be. Perhaps some one "over there" could enlighten?

Coyote Breath, I don't much like "Duke," either. While many young American men were risking their lives in WWII (including fellow celebrities with less macho images, most notably the amazingly heroic Jimmy Stewart), John Wayne and that other pussy hypocrite Ronald Reagan were safely playacting as soldiers on Hollywood back lots. What a couple of phonies; I wish Ted Williams woulda kicked their asses!

It should be noted, however, that JW's character in this film is an Irish-American son of immigrants, not a native Irishman, so some American (or Canadian, or Australian) actor could well be a better person to cast than Lewis or Neeson.

If my memory serves me correctly, the original short story involved someone connected with the IRA, not an Irish-American.

I can separate the politics from work of the actor. The bulk of John Wayne's films hold no interest for me, but The Quiet Man was a masterpiece. Wayne's performance was brilliant in this movie and he proved he was an actor, not just a movie star. It is a shame that he wasn't offered many roles of this type.

What alway amuses me about this film is the JW-Victor McLagen fight.

In reality Wayne wouldn't have stood a chance against McLagen, dispite the latter being considerably older (old enough to have served in the Great War).
McLagen had been a heavyweight boxer of some repute, to the extent of going Five rounds (I think it was) with the then reigning World Champion heavyweight - Jack Johnson - and walking out of the ring afterward.

To give the man his due, in WWII John Wayne did try to enlist but was rejected due to a football injury. (He attended USC on a full football scholarship.) Wayne apparently went to Washington to have the decision overturned but he was refused.   Wayne went on several tours in the Pacific visiting front lines.

I think in the Maurice Walsh story from which it comes the hero had been in the IRA before he emigrated to America. The film has him as a returned emigrant, I'm prety sure.

I've always wished that it could have been Robert Mitchum instead of John Wayne. Made for the part.

The two postings by (Rob) are really very interesting. For a change it sounds like someone really knows their stuff.

Sadly so much of the contributions on quiet a lot of the subjects in Mudcat are from people giving their opinions as if they were fact. In many cases, "The Isle of Innisfree" to give but one example, the facts have actually been supplied already by persons who know the full history behind a song or have a personal involvement with it.

Having loved this film for many years, I was delighted to finally have the story behind it's theme song from the composers son. It would be great to have more such contributions on a great number of songs that come up from time to time.

Obviously, confusing an actors political philosophy with his ability is a mistake that is shared by left and right. That John Wayne was often type cast and that he exibited no great range, is indisputable.
But the same could have been said about many "movie stars". I doubt that Cary Grant was given many roles that played outside the suave persona he represented. Would anyone have known that Dick Powell could do something other than sing and smile if his career hadn't stalled and allowed him to play Phillip Marlowe in "Murder, My Sweet"?
Allen Ladd played the same role in every film he made, so did Clint Eastwood, Charles Bronson, Gary Cooper and Rudolf Valentino. Hell, they wouldn't let Mickey Rooney grow up before "The Black Stallion".
Spencer Tracey had great range but, for all we know, so did the other stars who wre not given the meatier parts. John Wayne was, at heart, a western star. Even when he wasn't playing cowboys, he still walked with that lope from "The Virginian". It is, perhaps, interesting to note that so many movie cowboys were political conservatives.

I'm gonna have to watch the movie again to be sure, but I think the background music over the closing credits is a tune called "St. Patrick's Day" that Ford was fond of. Used it in "the LOng Grey Line" and a couple of his cavalry westerns. Great tune - anyway, I need an excuse to watch it again. It's been days since I watched it last.

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.   

Too funny!

Aw, ya gotta like John Wayne. His movies are a good time. Not a great actor, true. But most "stars" aren't. They just play themselves.

I doubt they could make The Quiet Man today, at least not the same way. Imagine a contemporary movie where a big ex-boxer smacks his wife around cross-country to the cheers of a following crowd and, when he has her sufficiently "softened-up", sends her home to make supper while he goes and kicks her brother's ass for good measure...

It was such a good formula, they repeated it in "McClintock". Ah yes, another movie where the Duke lays the boots to the fiery-eyed redhead all the way across town and spanks the bitchery out of her in front of adoring townsfolk.

By the way, I had a big crush on Maureen O'Hara as a young lad.

What Barry Fitzgerald said was, "Homeric!". I liked that movie so much that I moved to Ireland just to learn to play the tune that was used in so many scenes, "The Rakes of Mallow". Barry Fitzgerald is an excelent example of Hollywood type casting. He was a gifted actor with limitless range. James Agee thought him the most talented actor in films. But the producers kept him in those Abbey Theater Stage Irish roles whenever they could. Even when he won the Oscar, in Going My Way, he played "the role". Yet, he was Sean O'Casey's favorite actor. O'casey wrote "The Silver Tassie" just for him to play. Check out his brilliant performance in "The Sea Wolf" and "Ten Little Indians".
My point was, there is no way to determine the range of an actor once he is successfully typed.

After many years I had another look to-night at The Quiet Man, it was on BBC2, and without adverts, the perfect station for copying it.
I enjoyed it more than I did the first time I seen it, and I agree with Den, Barry Fitzgerald was superb, without doubt the star of the Film. Ard Mhacha.

I also watched it on BBC2, for the first time. It was/is a major pile of crap: it's about America, nothing to do with Ireland.
