Ciné Gael with Concordia University :: Fall 1996
Fr Marc Gervais called Lynn Doyle and said "You show Irish films, and I want to show John Ford films - let's do it together!", so that Fall we showed five John Ford films. It was one of many instances of close collaboration with Concordia.
The Quiet Man was of course one of those films, and Ford offered so many to choose from.
Great films and great actors the likes of John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara, Barry Fitzgerald, Victor McLaglan on the screen.
We closed the season with Hangman's House, a silent film, with Gabriel Thibaudeau, pianist at Cinémathèque québécoise and Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, providing the background music.
