The classics

It was classic movie weekend at the Rooney house.

Saturday night I caught the latter half of “The Quiet Man.” If you have a drop of Irish blood in you, then you’ve likely seen this movie more than once and loved every minute of it.

This was part of AMC’s Jown Wayne marathon Saturday in honor of the Duke’s 100th birthday.

Then on Sunday I watched “The Magnificent Seven” on DVD -- a great western with some of the greatest theme music in the history of movies.

Gotta love The Quiet Man. That never-ending fight scene is hilarious!!

What's even better is seeing the actual countryside in person. The Dingle Penninsula in Ireland is breathtaking.

Promise me you'll go someday, okay?
