Returning to the Ireland of his birth, director John Ford fashions a irresistable valentine to the "Auld Sod."  Irish-American boxer John Wayne, recovering from the trauma of having accidentally killed a man in the ring, arrives in the Irish village where he was born (Rotten Tomatoes).   Rated G; 129 minutes.

"Mr. Ford is in love with Ireland, as is his cast, and they give us a fine, gay time." (New York Times)
