The Quiet Woman is a low key crime thriller with a lot of outdoor location shooting but a humdrum and light plot.

Duncan McLeod (Derek Bond) a local artist with his assistant Lefty Brown (Michael Balfour) do a bit of part time smuggling of liquor across the English Channel. They store the liquor at the local pub Quiet Woman. Now it has been taken over by newcomer Jane Foster (Jane Hylton) and her employee Elsie (Dora Bryan) and they tell McLeod that they do not approve of whatever arrangements he had with the previous owner.

However Jane succumbs to the charms of McLeod but trouble ensues when her criminal husband turns up after escaping from prison and demands his wife's help and the two customs officers are hot on the heels of McLeod.

A pleasant but undemanding film with Jane trying to start a new law abiding life but finds out that it is difficult to get away from her past. Harry Towb made his film debut as Jane's thuggish husband who in later years became better known for children's television show, You and Me.
