      Watched TQM again. Thanks so much Jim. Now, is it OK for me to put the link to it on all the things I post on my FB page for WHITE O MORN? Lots of the folks I have talked to have never seen it?

      Thanks again, and I am looking forward to watching the others after work in the shop.

      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.

      Newly re-mastered in HD from a 4K SCAN of the ORIGINAL NEGATIVE. John Ford's The Quiet Man celebrates one of Hollywood's most romantic and enduring epics. The first American feature to be filmed in Ireland's picturesque countryside. Ford richly imbued this masterpiece with his love of Ireland and its people. Sean Thornton (John Wayne) in an American boxer who swears off fighting after he accidentally kills an opponent in the ring. Returning to the Irish town of his youth, he purchases the home of his birth and finds happiness when he falls in love with the fiery Mary Kate (Maureen O'Hara). But her insistence that Sean conduct his courtship in a proper Irish manner with matchmaker Barry Fitzgerald along for the ride as "chaperone" is but one obstacle to their future happiness: the other is her brother (Victor McLaglen), who spitefully refuses to give his consent to their marriage, or to honor the tradition of paying a dowry to the husband. Sean could care less about dowries, he would've punched out the bullying McLaglen long ago if he hadn't sworn off fighting. But when Mary Kate accuses him of being a coward and walks out on him, Sean is finally ready to take matters into his own hands, the resulting fistfight erupts into the longest brawl ever filmed, followed by one of the most memorable reconciliations in movie history! The Quiet Man won a total of two Academy Awardsr including Best Director (Ford) and Best Cinematography and received five more nomination including Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (McLaglen).


      Is this a good thing? Very excited.

      Cheers :cool: 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 video. I see people upthread complaining about the audio, but I never noticed any problems with the audio of The Quiet Man.

      Blu Ray.com has posted it's review of Olive Film's release of "The Quiet Man". The 4 K scan from an original camera negative is glorious! The images displayed are the finest I've seen from this film. There is some minor carping about a couple of audio cues, but the author's commentary and enthusiasm is infectious and now I can't wait to see this one.
      DVDSavant received his review copy too. Glenn took a look at it and states how happy he is with the transfer. He'll be posting his review on Tuesday.

      As Gorch already noted, blu-ray.com has posted screenshots and review of the newly-restored version of TQM. Here's the link: blu-ray.com/movies/The-Quiet-Man-Blu-ray/58675/#Review



      It looks fantastic. SO much better than the very poor quality versions available before! I can't wait to watch my copy I preordered on Amazon at amazon.com/Quiet-Anniversary-S…-1&keywords=The+Quiet+Man

      It will be VERY exciting to share this stunning restored version on the BIG screen with Maureen O'Hara herself who has accepted our invitation to join us at our 2013 John Wayne Birthday Celebration featuring a tribute to Maureen O'Hara on May 24-25th. ALL of the films starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara (Rio Grande, The Quiet Man, The Wings of Eagles, McLintock! and Big Jake) will be shown on the big screen in the Iowa Theatre on the Courthouse Square in Winterset.

      Those who've attended our past John Wayne Birthday Celebrations can tell you--there lots of fun and plenty of free things to do during this event. For those interested in attending our John Wayne Birthplace Museum Benefit Dinner with Maureen O'Hara on May 25th, tickets are now available at johnwaynebirthplace.org or by phone toll-free at (877) 462-1044. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

      I can't wait for this one. The DVD is such poor quality!
      I will be wearing my big newsboy cap in honour when I watch it.
      Ethankeith, is all this being re-posted on the Olive Films thread too? It should be!

      Peter, probably not,
      but I will copy it over there

      Sorry to hear about your knee, I hope it gets better soon.

      Also, thanks Wayne for the link to the Blu-ray, it looks very promising I envision this DVD in my collection.

      I have to say Maureen O'hara is so beautiful in those screen grabs.
