    I'm torn between McClinock and The Quiet Man.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Hard to choose from the Quiet Man and and the Searchers. Not to mention True Grit.

    True Grit is a bit too gritty for my taste. Too many snakes...

    The Quiet Man was definitely the best non-western. True Grit the best western (though not by much). And as a Marine, there’s always a spot in my heart for The Sands of Iwo Jima.

    I think he only won an oscar for True Grit, there should have been at least 2 more, if not 3.

    I've probably seen all of his movies ... many, more than once ... and have enjoyed them all.
    But my personal favorite? It's gotta be The Quiet Man! :blush:

    The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.....This...yes... Wayne's character so got a raw deal. It just wasn't fair. The ending tore me up for time. I like Stuart as an actor but I was not fond of his character at all in that movie.

    Thanks for posting. It was all about saving face-- never the money. The fight scene is the best!!! People were busing over from other towns. The priest left his fishing hole to see it. The dying man got up to watch. And such lively music to boot. "The books closed. The books closed." The Protestant pastor even won bet money. Oh dear. Charming story none the less. And the studio assumed they'd lose money on this film. They were so wrong.
