    ★★★

    The scene where she walks into the garage and finds the broken ceiling fan was hilarious.

    The Quiet Man

    ★★★½

    I had never watched the whole thing before. I agree that the Olive blu-ray is amazing. I need to look up whatever else Olive FIlms has done.

    But I'm still not fully on board. There are some odd editing/narrative decisions (I'm thinking specifically of the boxing background/flashbacks) that disrupt the flow of the film.

    That said, I almost want to give the film an extra star just for the rowdy joy of the ending, which is so infectiously fun that it's impossible not to finish watching the film with a smile.
