After accidentally killing his opponent in the ring, Irish-born American boxer Sean Thornton (John Wayne) returns to Ireland in an attempt to reclaim family’s farm and start a new, peaceful life. Not long after his arrival, Sean falls in love with an outspoken young woman (Maureen O’Hara) who just happens to be the sister of a bullish landowner (Victor McLaglen) who longed to purchase Sean’s family farm. To retaliate, the slighted man refuses to pay his sister’s wedding dowry. Don’t miss this rollicking romantic comedy!
