"The Quiet Man" was a dream project for director John Ford, and a fond tribute to his Irish heritage.

John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara were ideal as the tempestuous romantic couple, Sean and Mary Kate.
The chemistry between Duke and Maureen was off the charts.

Their characters marry, but marital bliss doesn't come until film's end.

John Ford had an idea--he wanted Maureen to whisper something shockingly suggestive to Duke.

Ford wanted a real reaction from him...and got it.

Maureen insisted that what she said never be revealed. And it wasn't.
The only three people who knew are all gone. And now...we can but imagine.

What could she possibly have said to elicit such a doubletake from Duke?
