I'll be damned, all these years I had no idea she was a fellow Ginger, after all, all we had was black and white TV.
RIP Maureen, you brought us hours of great memories.

At 15 I was madly in love with her.   :lol:

A greater-than-great actress.  I'm not really sure what my fave performance of her's is.  Probably The Black Swan, where she lost a bet and finally had to call Tyrone Power's character 'Jamie' at the end, after calling him all sorts of names thru-out the film in her usual fiery, huffy manner.

My fave O'Hara scene is in Commanche Territory, when Macdonald Carey accidentally spoils her shooting-contest outside of a bank.  Then he enters the bank to deposit a check... only to discover she's president of the bank.

That 'wild and untamed' personna...  :love:
