............ ..The Quiet Man - A wayne classic --- Donovans Reef- as above
Anything Western with this man in it !! (I was brought up by a Westerns fanatical Dad !!) ... Got the whole kit and caboodle in them, chase, gunfight, fist fight, a bit of romance (Maureen O'Hara - Yummy in her younger days !!), a bit of humour - and not forgetting his Singing Sandy days of the 40/50s. Have collected most of his films, even down to the unnamed bit parts that he did.
