The most purely enjoyable of all the great Ford films. [18 Sep 1998, p.J]

The Observer (UK)Philip French
A triumph of true sentiment over lurking sentimentality starring John Wayne as an Irish-American boxer returning to Ireland in search of peace and a wife (Maureen O'Hara) and finding himself in the middle of a brawling, drinking, singing, timeless Oirish Neverland. [03 Oct 2010, p.47]

One of John Ford's most popular films--but fearfully Irish and green and hearty.
