* ThrowItIn: At the end of the film, Mary Kate whispers something into John Wayne's ear. It was an unscripted bit of dialogue that John Ford insisted O'Hara say to Wayne in order to [[EnforcedMethodActing get an unexpected reaction]] on Wayne's part. The three were the only ones who know what was whispered -- and now only [[SecretKeeper O’Hara]] is left.

* DoingItForTheArt: Ford had desperately wanted to make this film for years, but had trouble finding a studio to back it. He finally made a deal with Republic Pictures -- which specialized in Westerns -- to film a Western for them in exchange for their VERY reluctant backing on ''The Quiet Man''. The Western Ford made was ''Rio Grande''; ''The Quiet Man'' went on to become Republic's biggest-ever box office hit, and the studio's ONLY movie ever to earn a Best Picture AcademyAward nomination. And Ford won his fourth Best Director award for this.
