Picture 'The Quiet Man' paperback edition

'The Quiet Man' directed by John Ford is undoubtedly one of the most popular Irish films of all time. Based on the story by Maurice Walsh, the film can instantly transport you to an old-time Ireland. This celebration of a film classic is crammed full of photographs of the stars, John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara on set, enjoying a cup of tea and a chat behind the scenes with the locals and simply enjoying the sights with their co-stars and Ford himself.

Des MacHale discovers the inspiration behind the film and explores the key influences on the director and examines the factors which gave the film such a distinctive and romantic feel. As the Cork Evening Echoso succinctly put it: "Fans of the film will find much to enjoy in here."
