Lent: Part 8

The Quiet Man (1952) – So, an American who’s actually Irish (but who is actually John Wayne, and God help us all if he tries to do an accent, so he’s American) comes to Ireland. It’s not set in the American West, so it’s not a Western, technically. Oh, and also he’s a boxer, I guess. That’s so he can punch the shit out of somebody later. And the scene where he drags his wife by the arm for five miles: priceless.
