Sean Thornton has returned from America to reclaim his homestead and escape his past. Sean's eye is caught by Mary Kate Danaher, a beautiful but poor maiden, and younger sister of ill-tempered "Red" Will Danaher. The riotous relationship that forms between Sean and Mary Kate, punctuated by Will's pugnacious attempts to keep them apart, form the main plot, with Sean's past as the dark undercurrent.Written by

In the race meeting scene, two pipers are shown playing. The pipes they are playing are Scottish pipes, characterized by having one bass and two tenor drones in addition to the chanter; traditional Irish pipes only have one bass and one tenor drone, plus the chanter. See more »
Father Peter Lonergan, Narrator:
Well, then. Now. I'll begin at the beginnin'. A fine soft day in the spring, it was, when the train pulled into Castletown, three hours late as usual, and himself got off. He didn't have the look of an American tourist at all about him. Not a camera on him; what was worse, not even a fishin' rod.

Not an Apache or fort in sight - but still a Fantastic movie !
Star performances all round for one of the greatest romantic comedies of the last century. No need for fancy special effects or computer graphics to make a good film. Just a quality storyline, quality direction, quality production and quality actors. The Duke made a fine cowboy but he made a better Quiet Man.
