About this movie

A tired American ex-boxer returns to his native hamlet in Ireland to win the hand of a spirited young woman. He is confronted by strict local customs and the woman's belligerent brother. Set in the verdant Irish countryside, this lively film has beautiful scenery, brilliant repartee, and local charm.

Involving some traditional and outdated stereotypes of women but still worth a watch. Understanding that this is a romantic story of how things used to be, it is a truly great movie. I found it funny, touching and refreshing to watch these two incredibly strong-willed characters interacting in this movie. It will always hold a special place in my collection.

I love the romanticized view of Ireland in this movie. John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara are perfect in their roles along with an all star cast. John Ford definitely wove his magic for this movie.

For years, my father would suggest this movie to me but I always resisted. While fighting the flu, I finally gave it a try. Not a year has gone by since that I don't watch it....and I enjoy it more each time.
