Over 200 guests and members of the Irish film Industry will attend this evening’s special Light House screening, organised in association with the Irish Film and Television Academy, following a wine reception at 6pm.
There will also be a special appearance by the grandchildren of actor Joseph O'Dea who played ‘Molouney’ the train guard in one of the most iconic and best-loved Irish films ever made.
Prior to now, ‘The Quiet Man’ has only been afforded very limited cinema re-releases due to the fragile state of the existing film prints.
The 1952 classic stars John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara, and was a labour of love for director John Ford who won his fourth Oscar for Best Directing for the film and whose passion for Irish scenery is evident in the Oscar-winning cinematography.
‘The Quiet Man’ is universally recognised as a hugely influential cinematic milestone by such directors as Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and Jim Sheridan.
