    The Quiet Man - just reviewed it earlier. great movie. i've got stagecoach on deck to watch this week, but am sure that is just as deserving to be on the list. Ford is the man!

    Thanks guys for added list.

    Ford's film definitely got a style of its own. Great wide cinematic shots of scenery, distinct music background and alot of closeup facial expressions without spoken words.
