This book involves both critical analysis of aspects of The Quiet Man as myth, commodity, and fetish and the celebration of a film that has sustained considerable academic attention and popular appreciation since its release in 1952.

Among the topics considered are the complexity of the film's relation to Ireland, Irish literature, and to John Ford's other films; its perceived place with regard to indigenous Irish cinema; and the phenomenon of its circulation and reception as a cult film over the years. ""This collective analysis and celebration of the movie is more readable than most volumes of scholarly essays. . . There is some fine writing here."" LA Theatre Examiner Online
