The Quiet Man (1952)

Director: John Ford

Ford digresses from his dusty trademark Westerns with this spirited love story set in lush Ireland. And what a rewarding digression it is. This stunning labor of love earned Ford an Oscar, and its beautiful scenery and score were also recognized with statuettes.
