St. Paul, Minn. — To celebrate St. Patrick's Day Flicks in Five looks at John Ford's 1952 classic film about an American prize fighter visiting Ireland. John Wayne gets more than he bargained for: a romance with a fiery Irish lass played by Maureen O'Hara, and in one of the best comic fights of all time with Victor McLaughlin. John Wayne starred as "the Quiet Man," and for the score, Victor young made a detailed study of original Irish folk tunes.
