Working from quartet of Eugene O’Neill plays, John Ford created a hauntingly dark dramatic universe, populated with his usual stock company of players augmented by John Wayne in the role of the na├»ve Swedish sailor Olsen.

      1. John Ford always liked hiring people he knew. Even the crew of his movies is a lot the same.

        5 movies with Maureen O’hara:

        Rio Grande (1950), The Quiet Man (1952), The Wings of Eagles (1957), McLintock! (1963) and Big Jake (1971).

        There is a lot of overlapping cast.
