From the Publisher‘In The Quiet Man, Luke Gibbons takes a thoughtful, detailed and absorbing approach to the history, myths and resonances of John Ford’s 1951 Irish classic, a film which, Gibbons notes, ‘has garnered accolades from directors as diverse as Spielberg and Scorsese, (while) for others it is the bane of Irish cinema.' ’’
Review of the Ireland into Film series:
"Each writer has also done an impressive amount of new archive research, which greatly enhances the series' value as fim history and film research. The volumes give full production details and where possible, contain good background interviews with writers and directors….Each volume is lavishly illustrated so that as well as providing good detailed information on the films and an engaged debate about adaptation in general, the series is also an excellent value for the collector"
