Maureen O'HARA (1920-2015) * AFI Top Actress nominee > IRISH actress & singer, appeared in some of the most important films of Hollywood's Golden Age. Tall, slender and athletic, famous for her flaming red hair, deep green eyes and creamy complexion. Dubbed the "Queen of Technicolor".
the beautiful Maureen O'Hara/••••She was one of my favorites, mostly because she frequently played opposite John Wayne, who was Daddy's favorite & mine by association. She & Patricia Neal were the only tall actresses around about then so one of them usually was cast w/Wayne. Her life was not always happy & John Ford, who frequently directed Wayne films, was a rattlesnake to work with, but she was a trooper!
