The filming of The Quiet Man was the culmination of a dream by John
Ford to make an Irish picture in Ireland. He bought the rights to the
story over a decade before and peddled it to every studio in Hollywood
and was turned down.
He went to Republic Pictures partly because John Wayne was just winding
down his contract with them and he wouldn't have to pay him extra, and
partly because Herbert J. Yates's small studio was the last stop. Ford
got the permission for The Quiet Man on the condition he do a sure fire
moneymaking John Wayne cavalry picture first. So Ford, Wayne, and
Maureen O'Hara did Rio Grande first before setting out for Ireland.
In her recent memoirs O'Hara said that this was her role of a lifetime,
she knew it would be before one frame of film was shot. She'd been
playing in a load of ridiculous Hollywood drivel films as a redheaded
Bedouin princess and she did them essentially for the money. This one
was to be a labor of love.
Love yes, but a labor nonetheless. John Ford was a talented, but
strange man to work for. He could be a bully and a tyrant on any set he
was on. She was grateful to him for the career making roles she got
with him, but recognized his faults. She relates in her memoirs that
Ford used his influence to knock her out of an Oscar Nomination for
Mary Kate Danaher in 1952 over some trivial offense Ford thought O'Hara
committed and took umbrage.
It was a family affair for Wayne of sorts as well. His kids came to
Ireland with him and you can see them at the horse racing scene as
extras. Young Patrick Wayne spoke his first movie lines. He also had
with him his second wife, Esperanza Baur who was not his kid's mom. She
was a tempestuous sort and they would soon part in a very ugly divorce.
Sean Thornton who was born in Innisfree, but went to America as a
toddler, has come back to his native Ireland after making a name for
himself as a prizefighter and killing a man in the ring. He and Maureen
O'Hara have an instant attraction for each other. However Wayne does
run afoul of her bully of a brother, Squire Will Danaher played by Ford
regular Victor McLaglen.
Wayne and O'Hara marry, but McLaglen won't turn over the bride's dowry.
And Wayne won't contest him for it.
So with a little help from The Taming of the Shrew and a bit of
Falstaff thrown in, things are put right in Innisfree. More I won't
As in all of John Ford's films and this is one of the best, he got some
grand performances from some of the most minute characters in the film.
Some of his regulars like Ward Bond, Mildred Natwick, Ken Curtis, Barry
Fitzgerald and Arthur Shields with the rest of the roles played by
Dublin's acclaimed Abbey Theatre players. One of my favorites is Jack
McGowran who played Feeney, Squire Danaher's little toady factotum.
The music was arranged by Victor Young who did a grand job of using
traditional Irish melodies in the score. One song, The Isle of
Innisfree was recorded by Bing Crosby for Decca and sold a few platters
for him the year The Quiet Man came out.
The Quiet Man is an annual classic for St. Patrick's Day, the same way
It's A Wonderful Life is for Christmas. At least in America it is. I've
wondered if it is as well received in Ireland as it is here. I think
John Ford, the former Sean O'Fearna, was hoping it would turn out that
Mr. Ford, you got your wish.
