It would be great if they release the Cary Grant films Republic has the rights to. (That Touch of Mink, Indiscreet, Father Goose, etc.)

Vanscottie, if you own the DVD, you know it's got the ugliest transfer in the history of good movies on DVD. No hyperbole. If you even remotely like the movie, "4K restoration" should have perked you up. I guess you don't like the movie.

I hope they restore it properly. The DVD and TV versions are the ugliest 3-strip Technicolor presentation I've ever seen.

They have a nitrate negative for a film from 1952? Huh?

Homeric! St. Patrick's Day hasn't been the same, since I can't abide the DVD.

This is great news! My Dad loves John Wayne, too and I can't wait to watch this with him.

This is absolutely fantastic news. Wondered who had the rights to this. I haven't even seen it on TCM for a couple of years. Wish it was out before Christmas. Thank you Olive!

Splendid artwork! Can't wait to own this. Very happy with my other 2 Olive purchases (High Noon and Invasion of the Body Snatchers '56). Very happy they are including the making-of hosted by Maltin on this (just like they did for High Noon's release).

I agree, this was one of the worst DVD releases of a beautiful classic I've ever seen, and I'm psyched to see it restored and properly remastered! Day one.

I am again frustrated that only Olive is issuing films that I was longing to get back in high quality video (Quiet Man is surely one of the worst looking DVDs ever), but the studio neglects to make the decision to issue subtitles. While these are not so important to many people, they are radically essential to me and my family. I have already declined to buy two of Olive releases, which were important to my collection and it seems that I am on the verge of declining yet another one!

Day one purchase for me! Have waited so long for this. Had the VCR and DVD which were abysmal prints and unworthy of purchase.

Can't wait to see 'The Quiet Man' as it was meant to be seen! Too bad Maureen O'Hara's insightful commentary won't be included; for this reason, I'm keeping my Republic Pictures DVD.

Can't wait to see red-haired Maureen O'Hara appear herding her sheep in restored 1080p! It's about time the Queen of Technicolor and The Duke were presented properly in this magical film. I own the book about the making of this film (The Complete Guide to the Quiet Man, by Des McHale). Time to re-read it and then pop in the Blu-ray on day one.
