August 17, 2012 ~ Happy 92nd Birthday to Maureen O'Hara! Duke and Maureen made 5 films together: Big Jake, McLintock!, The Wings of Eagles, The Quiet Man and Rio Grande. Maureen had a long lasting friendship with Duke and director John Ford. We wish Maureen the very best on her birthday!
The Quiet Man I love John Wayne, but I love him even more in movies that aren't Westerns. This is one of my favorites, partly because it reminds me of Mcklintock (great movie) but also because it is shot in beautiful Ireland!
