A great masterpiece on film.
One of the best directed by John Ford. An emotional, humorous look at an American, played by John Wayne, going back to his native Ireland and trying to fit in with the present culture. Sensational scenery and the grand music by Victor Young support this classic among classics. Breezy and rowdy. Too beautiful to turn your back on. A great illustration of romance. The interaction between Wayne and Maureen O’Hara is magical and hard to beat.
Other classic performances are turned in by Victor McLaglen, Ward Bond and Barry Fitzgerald.
in light of the performance, should be titled the Oscar Man?
I grew up watching the Ford/Wayne movies that everyone else knows all too well. The other night I was intrigued by the TiVo information about a movie I had never even heard of starring Wayne and Directed by Ford. It sounded like quite a departure for both, especially Wayne in 1952.
I just couldn’t believe what I was viewing after about 15 minutes into the film. The sweeping and beautiful vistas, the development of a haunted and potentially troubled past of this American come home to the small village in Ireland where he was born…I began thinking of Hollywood’s other leading actors of that time, and how this role would probably be better served by the likes of Grant, Gable, Stewart, etc., however…as the movie progressed, I began to see the Duke in a completely new light.
Throughout much of the movie, the title aptly decribes Sean Thorton, at least his dialog. Few parts for much of the story involve John speaking more than a sentence or two, it seems often times just a few words at a time; and those were in scenes where the bulk of the dialog were from his co-stars and supportng actors. However this isn’t really even noted except early on. But once you become absorbed in his screen presence, and as the plot develops, the charisma and presence of the actor are HUGE! Make no mistake, this movie magnificently illustrates how incredible Wayne was as a leading man in a superb drama. It’s often times mentioned by the legendary actors who appear on Inside the Actors Studio, that movie magic is captured in many a scene where we just behold the actors in silence. This to me captures that very concept.
I won’t go into the plot or theme much more than I have. but I will say after one viewing, I have to place this movie in my personal top three of Wayne’s body of work. My wife, who wasn’t a big Wayne fan to begin with, but loves the romances from this period, simply fell in love with this movie.
One a scale of 1-10, 10.
