Zoom Film – The Quiet Man

Our next feature is actually in colour!

On Tuesday 23rd February, 2021 from 1.30pm to 3.45pm

The Quiet Man is a 1952 American romantic comedy-drama film directed by John Ford.

John Ford directed John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara in a number of classic unforgettable Westerns with a familiar supporting cast including Ward Bond, Victor McLaughlin, Mildred Natwick and other pros. “The Quiet Man” moves these familiar icons from the post Civil War American West to the post World War II rural Ireland.

Few movies can boast such a stunning range of locations as “The Quiet Man,” which was filmed largely in Ireland, in picturesque rural Galway and south County Mayo. It was one of the first colour films ever shot outside of North America and many members of the crew fell in love with their surroundings and brought their families back.

It is a simple story but it’s amusing, very easy to watch and leaves you with a warm glow and a smile. Also the building of the “diddly diddly music” approaching the fight sequence is a delight.

A joining link will be sent out 2/3 days before the 23rd February 2021
