The Quiet Man

Recommended Posts

My wife's favorite movie.  Since we were married in 1965 I've watched it at least one a year, sometimes more.  Until today I never noticed that when the crowd was singing A Wild Colonial Boy in the pub the mouths were not in sync with the singing.  I don't think they were singing that song at all, but it was dubbed in later.

The problem with watching ANY movie too many times is that you begin to spot the obvious errors like you mentioned. It wasn't until I watched Tora Tora Tora a bazillion times that I began to notice some of the extras were visibly aware of the camera on them.

Next time you watch it look closely at the accordion player.  He should look familiar.

Perhaps the patrons of the pub were singing in Gaelic and it was afterwards dubbed in English. :rolleyes:

Don't know if this bothers anyone else, but having been in marching band in both junior and senior high school, I notice when people in movies are marching to music.

 

And it bugs the hell out of me when they are out of step.

 

Not out of step with each other. They're usually pretty good about that.

 

Out of step with the music. Arrrgghhhhh.

Watching The Quiet Man every St. Patrick's Day has been my tradition for years.  Looking forward to it yet again.

 

The Quiet Man and The Masters Tournament -- signs that winter is over!    ;)

 My favorite is when there's a band on stage and you hear music playing. You hear horn music but the band on stage does not have a horn section. Or vice versa. Or the music has a drum fill and the drummer's quietly sitting behind the set tapping out quarter notes or something innane.

Most of the scenes in this film were filmed in the Village of Cong in County Mayo.  There were other scenes shot in County Galway which is close to Cong also.  My grandfather grew up not far from there and I have been to Cong several times during the eight times I have visited Ireland.

Oge Flynn??

 

I've seen that movie at least a dozen times, and always thought it was O'Flynn.

 

But then, there's an Eddie Robinson gangster comedy, Larceny Inc.

I've seen it numerous times, and always thought his character was "Crusher". Was looking it up the other day, and find out it's"Pressure".

Cohan’s when the movie was made was a funeral parlor.  When I first visited in 1996 it was a tourist shop.  Now it is a Pub again.
