Sean Thornton (John Wayne, Sands of Iwo Jima), an American boxer with a tragic past, returns to the Irish town of his youth. There, he purchases his childhood home and falls in love with the fiery local lass, Mary Kate Danaher (Maureen O’Hara, Rio Grande). But Kate's insistence that Sean conduct his courtship in a proper Irish manner with matchmaker Michaleen Oge Flynn (Barry Fitzgerald, Going My Way) along for the ride as chaperone is but one obstacle to their future together; the other is her brother, “Red” Danaher (Victor McLaglen, Rio Grande), who spitefully refuses to give his consent to their marriage, or to honor the tradition of paying a dowry to the husband. Sean couldn't care less about dowries or any other tradition that might stand in the way of his happiness. But when Mary Kate accuses him of being a coward, Sean is finally ready to take matters into his own hands. The Quiet Man would go on to win two Academy Awards in 1953, including Best Director (John Ford) and Best Cinematography and received five more nominations including Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (McLaglen).

Adventure is the name of the game in the action-packed, western-tinged The Night of the Grizzly. Clint Walker (The Dirty Dozen) stars as “Big Jim" Cole, a former lawman who trades his badge for rancher duds when he inherits land in Wyoming. But no sooner has the Cole family begun settling into their new life when nature — in the form of a blood-thirsty grizzly bear — rears its ugly head. Adding to the terror and tension are a group of envious neighbors who want the Cole property for themselves, and the unwelcome return of an outlaw from Big Jim’s past who’s out for revenge. Directed by Joseph Pevney (Man of a Thousand Faces), The Night of the Grizzly features a who's-who of great character actors including Keenan Wynn (Once Upon a Time in the West), Jack Elam (Hannie Caulder), Leo Gordon (Hondo) and Ron Ely (TV's Tarzan).

So, the inevitable Quiet Man question... new transfer, or repackaging of the last Olive issue?

I know it says "4k" transfer, but I don't recall how the last issue was done.

All of the Olive Signature releases are from new masters. How good those masters are we will have to wait and see.

I suppose I'll have to wait for Mr Harris to chime in. I know he wasn't thrilled with the Olive's first attempt - serviceable, but not really looking "velvety" enough, I think was his comment. At least, one of his comments.

If Olive doesn't correct the macroblocking problem found in the initial release, I'll buy the Eureka one which hasn't got any problem..

Hopefully, the upcoming Blu-ray for THE QUIET MAN (1952) is an example of "Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover", because that cover sure doesn't scream HD or a "velvety enough" image! Heck it doesn't even "quietly" whisper them! ;)

CHEERS! :)
