A collection of poor quality photographs: incomplete guide
on 26 January 2012
If you, like me, are looking for a photographic book about The Quiet Man this is a waste of money, especially when buying the more expensive hardcover. The reviews here are all enthusiasts about the author and the large quantity of photos, so I thought this was the book I was looking for, but I was disappointed ! Those hundreds of photos they talk about are for the most part amateur , which means very poor quality. Professional photos are a minority, many just depicting the places of location, some others in a very small size. Good quality pictures of cast and film are but a few. So if you are interested in the story of the filming, better choose the paperback edition. If you only want a collection of quality photos from the movie Quiet Man with cast and crew in them, look for something else.
