Another of the many collaborations between John Wayne and director John Ford, "The Quiet Man" (1952) is one of Wayne's few departures from his usual Western movies. Ford won his fourth and final Best Director OscarĀ® for this touching and often humorous story of a man's return to his birthplace in Ireland. Offered here is a first release US Three-Sheet from 1952. This image of Sean Thornton (Wayne) carrying Mary Kate Danaher (Maureen O'Hara) was only used for this poster format making it rarer and more desirable to collectors.
