He's also on Pilgrimage (R1 dvd) and The Hurricane (blu-ray). I've listened to them all and I think they're all great. Pilgrimage stuck in my mind especially for his love of this lesser-known film.

Been holding out for that recent Olive release of Quiet Man; still haven't listened to the commentary on Clementine, maybe I'll do so this week.


Don't wait too long on the Olive Signature release of The Quiet Man. Last year's Olive Signature releases, including The Quiet Man, will be going out of print in the near future.

That looks very soft and even blurry in some of the grabs. The Criterion dvd must have been edge enhanced. If not, then this is very disappointing...

We'll remember two things, lenses were much softer in 1939.

And contrast increases perceptual sharpness, so slightly less contrast might make it seem less sharp if you looked at them side by side but does not indicate any change in sharpness. Also you will never look at them side by side on equally calibrated monitors in motion, so the point is moot.

How are McBride's commentaries? Is he on any other disc?

Kind of sad not to see Tag Gallagher on this release, but you can still read the following essay as I did while imagining his voice:
