Just in time for Saint Patrick's Day, DALLAS VOICE presents the classic film THE QUIET MAN at the BIG MOVIE at the MAGNOLIA. One of Hollywood's most romantic and enduring epics, John Ford's The Quiet Man is the first American feature to be filmed in Ireland's picturesque countryside. Ford (whose real name was Sean O'Feeney) richly imbued this masterpiece with his love of Ireland and its people. Sean Thornton (John Wayne) is an American who swears off boxing after accidentally killing an opponent. Returning to the Irish town of his birth, he finds happiness when he falls in love with the fiery Mary Kate (Maureen O'Hara). They wed, but her brother refuses to pay the dowry. Sean would rather walk away than accept this challenge. Even when his new wife accuses him of cowardice, Sean stands firm. But when she boards a train to leave, he is finally ready to take matters into his own hands. Contains one of the longest brawls ever filmed! Winner of two Oscars, including Best Director.
