Synopsis

This rollicking piece of Irish blarney has John Wayne playing a retired prizefighter who returns from Pittsburgh to his ancestral village in rural Ireland intent on the quiet life. What he gets is just the reverse! Immediately falling out with the local squire (Victor McLaglen) over a property deal he then falls for the squire's red haired sister (Maureen O'Hara). A fierce rivalry develops between the two men, culminating in a marathon fist fight followed by the entire village population. This fine comedy-drama gained Oscars for John Ford, the director, and for the superb photography of the in magnificent Irish landscape.
