Olive Films is finally bringing the John Ford classic The Quiet Man to Blu-ray this January. Directed by Ford, the film stars John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara, Barry Fitzgerald, and Ward Bond. The Quiet Man will be hit video stores on Blu-ray on January 22, 2013.
In the film, Sean Thornton (Wayne) has returned from America to reclaim his homestead and escape his past. Sean’s eye is caught by Mary Kate Danaher (O’Hara), a beautiful but poor maiden, and younger sister of ill-tempered “Red” Will Danaher (Victor McLaglen). The riotous relationship that forms between Sean and Mary Kate, punctuated by Will’s pugnacious attempts to keep them apart, form the main plot, with Sean’s past as the dark undercurrent.
The Quiet Man was released in July 1952 and grossed over 3.2 million at the box office in its first year of release. The film was nominated for seven Academy Awards, winning two, Best Director (Ford) and Best Cinematography.
Here is the theatrical trailer for The Quiet Man.
