The Quiet Man Many people think this is sexist but he is a man trying to change and she is wanting a man who is strong and has not learned that she is really seeking spiritual strength. (at least that is what I think about it ) :)
John Wayne dukes it out with Victor McLaglen in The Quiet Man. The Quiet Man, one of John Ford's many iconic movies, explored the desire to return to Ireland and attempt to fit in with an insular society. It made a huge star of Maureen O’Hara and further cemented John Wayne’s stature. It also put Ireland on the map as a film making destination.
