The Irish classic: 'The Quiet Man'

Luck o' the Irish: It's hard to think of a more quintessential American duo than director John Ford and star John Wayne, whose myth-making Westerns have become the icons for an entire genre. But years later, the Duke himself admitted that his favorite movie was the Irish romantic comedy "The Quiet Man." Noted for its lush showcasing of the Emerald Isle, the film won two Oscars in 1953 for cinematography and directing. The take-away: Lack of an effective Irish accent did nothing to hurt Wayne's career. Artisan Home Entertainment
