In an attempt to escape his past, Sean Thornton (John Wayne) returns to America to reclaim his homestead. Once he is home, his eye is caught by Mary (Maureen O'Hara), a poor maiden with an ill-tempered older brother named Will. Their relationship is constantly on attack by Will (Victor McLaglen), which forms the main plot line, with Sean's past as the undercurrent.
What an amazing movie set in picturesque Ireland. John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara have such chemistry and give an honest and beautiful portrayal of Sean and Mary. So many memorable scenes come to mind. A classic film that let's you see how John Wayne wasn't just a cowboy actor.
