A good movie

6 years, 6 months ago at Sep 20 11:41
Honestly, beforehand, I have never heard of this movie before but since it was on the list '1001 movies you must see before you die', I was definitely eager to check it out. First of all, I had to admit it, I'm not really familiar with John Wayne's work and, in my opinion, he basically always portrayed typical tough guys so I was rather surprised to see him being cast in a such a romantic feature... read more

Sean Thornton has returned from America to reclaim his homestead and escape his past. Sean's eye is caught by Mary Kate Danaher, a beautiful but poor maiden, and younger sister of ill-tempered "Red" Will Danaher. The riotous relationship that forms between Sean and Mary Kate, punctuated by Will's pugnacious attempts to keep them apart, form the main plot, with Sean's past as the dark undercurrent.
Release date: 14 September 1952

" Notes: I had to admit it, I'm not really familiar with John Wayne's work and, in my opinion, he basically always portrayed typical tough guys so I was rather surprised to see him being cast in a such a romantic feature. And the best thing is that it actually worked. Basically, it is a rather simple and very old-fashioned romantic feature. Still, the fact that it was so old-fashioned made it, at the same time, very cute and charming but also sometimes rather annoying to watch. Still, I though"

" This is one, I'm pretty sure, I first saw at high school. I likely would've been a sophomore, which would've been late 2009, early 2010 for anyone curios about my age, watching it in my film history class. We likely would've watched this early on, when we were looking at "classic" cinema. The class itself was a bit up and down; most of the time the assistant teacher would take the class way too seriously, treating every little thing like a life or death situation (or in this case, life or deten"

My movie year 2016 (666 movies items)

"4.8. (Teatteri/35 mm) Taas elokuva, joka saa pohtimaan John Fordin käsittämätöntä yliarvostusta. Toki myönnän tutustumiseni ohjaajaan olevan vielä pahasti kesken, mutta käsittääkseni nämä muutamat nimikkeet kuitenkin ovat joitakin ukon alttaritauluja? John Wayne kokee kulttuurishokkia Irlannissa - sikäli kunnioitettavasti, ettei Ameriikan poika polje väkisin tietään valtaistuimelle, vaan Waynen hahmoa aletaan arvostaa vasta tämän noudatettua maan tapoja, tässä tapauksessa v"
