A polite, soft-spoken fellow by the name of Sean Thornton, played by John Wayne, makes his way to the small Irish village of Innisfree. He's come back to his ancestral home to purchase his father's house "White O' Morning," but in doing so, he rouses the ire of local squire "Red" Will Danaher ([=McLaglen=]), who wanted the property himself. Complicating matters is that on the journey to town, Thornton caught a glimpse of beautiful [[HeroesWantRedheads redhead]] Mary Kate Danaher (Will's sister), and the two fall in {{love|AtFirstSight}}. Unfortunately, even to say to Mary Kate, "Hi, how are you? Wanna marry me and live happily ever after?" Thornton has to get Will's permission first. And Will will join the Church of Ireland before THAT ever happens. HilarityEnsues.

* MidBattleTeaBreak: During the fight, Thornton and Danaher end up in a bar where they stop to have a glass of porter and each politely offers to pick up the tab. This soon turns into an argument and they end up fighting again.

Added DiffLines:

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: The IRA lads. They talk a good deal, but mostly they seem to hang out at the pub and other social gatherings.


Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslyAproposMusic: The village men welcome Sean by singing "Wild Colonial Boy". Just as they get to the verse where the song's protagonist robs the local squireen, who should walk in but squire "Red" Will Danaher, who was "robbed" of White O' Morn by Sean. Lampshaded when Fahy, the accordionist, mockingly addresses Will as "squireen".

* LyricalDissonance: Invoked. During the post-wedding celebration, Fr. Paul and some of the other men are playing and singing a jaunty, upbeat little tune on the piano. Even Fr. Lonergan joins in! Only they're playing "The Humor is on me Now", a song about a young girl lamenting her marriage. It makes sense when Mary Kate regrets marrying a "coward". Then it's subverted when they finally and happily move past their troubles together.

* FailedAttemptAtDrama: When asked if she'll put her bonnet in the auction, Mary Kate emphatically declares she will ''not'' and clamps it defiantly on her head. The breeze immediately blows it off.

* DoubleEntendre: During the wedding party, Will Danaher makes a winding speech leading up to a proposal of the widow, but loses his way and looks for help. His man suggests "without further eloquence", by which is meant "without further ado" -- but Danaher [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin proceeds to propose as bluntly as possible, anyway]].
