The Complete Guide to 'The Quiet Man'
John Ford's classic film celebrated the 50th anniversary of its cinema release in 2002. To coincide with this event Appletree have issued their acclaimed The Complete Guide to The Quiet Man in paperback format.
John Ford's Oscar-winning film The Quiet Man (1952), based on the story by Maurice Walsh, is one of the best-loved and most popular of all time, and currently also one of the best-selling videos. This new paperback edition of The Complete Guide to 'The Quiet Man' is a celebration of every aspect of the film - the background, the stars, the shooting, the screenplay, the influences, and the many legends and stories that have grown up around it.
This book could just as easily have been called "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About The Quiet Man" - the shooting location with dozens of detailed maps; a very comprehensive cast and crew list; hundreds of photographs taken by both amateurs and professionals; an in-depth analysis of every word of the dialogue; video timings of all the scenes; and above all the inside story and a thorough discussion of the whole Quiet Man phenomenon, which have all led to one of the greatest cult movies of all time.
"The book contains all that any Quiet Man enthusiast would need to know about the much celebrated epic love story."
"It is, in a nutshell, the best movie book ever written."
