The Quiet Man (1952) (Victor Young)

Coincidentally, I was going to post this one when somebody asked for another Victor Young score, Around the World in 80 Days, so I thought I'd post them together. This is another favorite score to a favorite movie. Victor Young incorporates some traditional folk tunes into his score (as seems to be director John Ford's wont in many pictures) and merges them into another lyrical score.

This is another score that I can't help but instantly like just because of its immediate association with the film, but regardless of that, it's still a great score. Because of the popularity of the film, I would suspect that this is still available in the stores, so I would encourage everybody to go out and get it if they like listening to it here. You won't be sorry (okay, it's true that I can't guarantee your emotional state at any given time, but it's just a guess on my part).

I would also encourage people to see the movie if you haven't seen it, but then why listen to me? No reason, actually, now that I think about it. Well, if you like the stuff you find on this blog, you've probably already seen The Quiet Man, so I'm just wasting my time asking you to. Okay, I'll stop.

It seems that Track 10--"I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen" is missing.

Thanks so much for putting this up. One of my all-time favorites.
