    Quote: “Michaleen: That's nothin' but a wee humble cottage. Sean: That little place across the brook, that humble cottage. Who owns it now? Michaleen: The widow Tillane. Not that she lives there. Sean: You think she'd sell it? Michaleen: I doubt it. Sean: Don't bet on it. 'Cause I'm buyin' it. Michaleen: Why...why would a Yankee from Pittsburgh want to buy it? Sean: I'll tell you why, Michaleen Oge Flynn, young small Michael Flynn, who used to wipe my runny nose when I was kid. Because I´m Sean …

    I recently saw the Blu-Ray version. I have to admit: it is noticably better than the usual DVD. You can see the background in the church where Sean is at Mass. And all the colors are brighter than the DVD.

    Quote from Romy: “:wink_smile: The blu-ray version was perhaps too expensive!” What? They don't have any friends with a Pirate Bay account? :search::wink_smile:

    TCM didn't show the blu-ray version Sunday night. They used the copy they've been using for years where anything black is so dark you can't see any details. Ah, well, maybe next year.

    Quote from Hondo Duke Lane: “Just saw The Quiet Man will be released on bluray on January 22, 2013. Here is the Info on this movie and yes I am excited for the finally release date for this movie. And there is more on the process that will maybe excite you on this release of this movie. Is this a good thing? Very excited. Cheers Hondo” Is it a good thing? As I understand remastering, it means the video will be improved noticeably. It will certainly be nice to see more color and detail in the vid…

    I just finished watching The Quiet Man again - what other movie would I be watching on St. Patrick's Day? Something has got to be done to fix the master print of the film. I watched the DVD and the shadows are so dark there's nothing to see. The scene in the church where Sean meets Mary Kate looks like it was filmed in the dead of night.

    Quote from Tbone: “Seaneen, The contraption you ask about is an old fashioned steam tractor. In addition to pulling and plowing, the big wheels on the sides were connected to machines via large belts and used to provide power for operating them. These would be things like bailers and lifts. You can't tell from the way it's setup in the scene but it's possible they would have had a hay wagon hooked up to the back of it from bringing in hay. There aren't any belts on the wheels so they wouldn't ha…

    A 17 page thread about "The Quiet Man"? "The JWMB has become another word for heaven to me." Something I've always wondered about: just before the big fight Danaher and the boys are bringing in the hay. But what is that contraption with the fire inside? And why would they want a fire at all? What could they possibly be burning in a meadow full of dry hay?
