    It sounds like you may be confused with Mcclintock but we will see what Hondo uncovers from his feedback from Maureen O'hara it would be very interesting if it was true but i don't think it is.

  • Hi Bill


    Hit the second link on my original post and you should be brought up the relevant page.


    Where it states choose movie hit the little side arrow and it will bring up a long list simply scroll down that list and hit the quiet man, then just fill in the other details on the page and hit the submit entry at the bottom of the page.


    The first link I supplied is a messageboard where people talk about their favourite Irish movie.

  • Thanks Robbie,


    By chance are you Roger? The types of post from Roger sounds a lot like you and you defend TQM well. I put in my vote.


    Cheers B)

  • Lol nothing gets by you Mike.


    I didn't fancy using my real name on what appears to be an angry and volatile messageboard, I think Davros simply disliked the movie for political reasons which I found disappointing.

  • Robbie,


    Maybe you can enlighten us on something. It seems that your countrymen are not high on The Quiet Man. The question I have is Why are they not high on this movie? Is it due to John Wayne or John Ford? Maybe it's the story line that has stereotyped Ireland or is it something else?


    I'm curious about this because I am not there and would like to understand or maybe it's the opinion of a few in your country?


    Love to hear your comments.


    Cheers B)

  • I added my vote as well.


    And as Hondo stated above, I too am curious as to the "dislike" of The Quiet Man.

  • Hey, Robbie what would you say if I told you "Darby O'Gill and The Little People" is my favorite "Irish" movie? :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • I've never seen it, Arthur. I'll have to see if I can locate it.
