RIP MAUREEN O' HARA 1920-2015

The lovely actress who starred with John Wayne in such films as "THE QUIET MAN" and "RIO GRANDE" has passed away.

She was a tough and fiery female who impressed Wayne very much in all five of the films they made together. She had a long and wonderful career and was a highlight in every film she appeared in.

In 1939 she was Esmeralda in "THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME" opposite Charles Laughton. Two other films I really remember her from are "WAR ARROW" from 1953 and "COMANCHE TERRITORY" from 1952.

She was born in Dublin, Ireland and she passed away on Oct. 24th at her home in Boise, Idaho from natural causes. One of the last of the great actresses of the golden age, she will certainly be missed, but she leaves behind a wonderful legacy of films we can all enjoy.

She was 95.
