Thread Name: Obit: Actress Maureen O'Hara (1920-2015)
Subject: Obit: Actress Maureen O'Hara (1920-2015)
From the New York Times:
Maureen O'Hara, the spirited Irish-born actress who played strong-willed, tempestuous beauties opposite all manner of adventurers in escapist movies of the 1940s and '50s, died on Saturday at her home in Boise, Idaho. She was 95.
There's a great article about her in the Los Angeles Times
What a beautiful woman she was. Many watched The Quiet Man to see John Wayne, but it was O'Hara's performance in that movie that lingers in my memory.
Not a bad singer, either:
May she rest in peace.
