John Wayne hangs up his spurs to star as bachelor ex-boxer Sean Thornton in this endearing classic. Back in his native Ireland, the Duke's thoughts turn to domestic tranquility after courting the lovely Mary Kate (Maureen O'Hara). But her brother (Victor McLaglen) may need to have some common sense knocked into him -- literally -- before the deal is done. The film won two Academy Awards, including Best Director (John Ford).

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that some critics have claimed that this is an anti-feminist movie, but that is a very superficial perspective. There's a flashback to Sean's professional boxing career, in which he accidentally killed another boxer, the reason he is reluctant to fight in Ireland. References to ability of married couples to hit each other. Some prejudice against Sean as an American and an outsider. Very nice depiction of religious tolerance, as the Catholic priest tells his parishioners to pretend they are congregants of the Protestant minister, so he can impress his bishop with how many members he has in his congregation. Brief references to a (non-violent) IRA.

Sexual Content

References (fairly subtle) to the fact that Mary Kate and Sean do not sleep together following their wedding.

Violence

Fist-fighting, but very mild by modern interpretations.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Some prejudice against Sean as an American and an outsider.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A lot of drinking in pubs, references to Michaeleen's "terrible thirst," drunkenness.
