too dry and stiff
25 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Leonald Maltin narrates this 28 minute retrospective on the classic movie, with can be found as an extra on the Collector's Edition DVD of "the Quiet Man. It combines old publicity stills, vintage archive interview footage, clips of various John Ford movies, as well as new interviews (well new to 1992) with John Wayne's son and daughter (both who have since passed on themselves) This documentary, apart from the interviews is a bit on the dry side and as such doesn't really warrant repeat viewings, even for HUGE fans of the "the Quit Man", of which I am one.

My Grade: D+
