Another classic movie that I have just recently viewed for the first time. The story is enjoyable and not one would expect to see John Wayne star in. Good to see The Duke in a different setting. Maureen O'Hara had an amazing performance.Another classic movie that I have just recently viewed for the first time. The story is enjoyable and not one would expect to see John Wayne star in. Good to see The Duke in a different setting. Maureen O'Hara had an amazing performance. Looking forward to seeing more of her movies in the future. Interesting to see the portrayal of Ireland at the period of time. The story follows a man moving back to the nation of his birth. Hijinks ensue as he becomes acclimated to the people and customs of his homeland. Highly recommend watching this gem. Expand

It's not particularly profound, but holds up so well as an all-around family movie.

Sean Thornton (John Wayne) travels back to Ireland, the land of his fathers, after being raised in the US, only to find himself in love with the redhead Mary Kate Danaher (Maureen O'Hara). Her brother, however, doesn't take kindly to Thornton, and, as a result, drama ensues. I say "drama", but this movie is so upbeat with its Irish charm and humor, I would say it's a cozy watch if you want to get in a good mood. It is a prime example of the beauty of technicolor, and the wardrobe is on-point. It's not the greatest John Wayne movie, but, by God, it's the very definition of underrated. Even the musical score is fantastic. Good for adults and children alike. Children will find the third act especially fun. And if you're into boxing/MMA, you may very well appreciate it, too. A great film for couples, as well. The way marriage was handled back then is a fascinating subject matter. Expand
