The Quiet Man (1952). A retired American boxer returns to the village of his birth in Ireland, where he finds love.

This is a very, very dated romance, ripe with stoic men and pretty relaxed feelings towards abuse. John Wayne isn’t a great actor at teh best of times, and is especially miscast in this movie that requires a greater range than brooding and shooting. Maureen O’Hara is, as always, a total delight though, and the cinematography, score and art department is generally beautiful. 6/10.
