Goodbye Maureen O’Hara

maureen-oharaAnother legend has left us. The fantastic Maureen O’Hara has died at the age of 95. She was one of the most versatile and prolific actresses from The Golden Age and will probably be best remembered for the great Westerns she made with John Wayne (those two made one amazing duo!) and the Christmas favorite ‘Miracle on 34th Street (1947). After years of talking to and becoming friends with classic movie buffs on Facebook and things like that, I can tell you that she was one of the most beloved stars from The Golden Age. Everybody always speaks so highly of her and they’re all devastated. It’s always incredibly sad when a star from the good ol’ days passes away. But there’s always the movies.

Rest in Peace Maureen O’Hara 1920 – 2015

    One of the feisty OH red-heads …
    I remember first watching her in How Green was my Valley. Probably still my fav of all of her movies I’ve watched so far…
    My mum always said Maureen O’Hara reminded her of herself when she was younger, since they both have a tall forehead
    I have an Australian Internet friend whose favourite actor is John Wayne and she just so happens to share her birthday with Maureen, who she adores.

    nice one, Carol. agree.Some people watch “the miracle on 34th Street” every Chistmas and “The Quiet Man” every St. Patrick’s Day”. They get to see her at least twice a year. 🙂
