    • Speaking of Maureen O'Hara . . .

      To all,

      The link which I am sharing below is one that may have been shared before, if that's the case I apologize, but with the latest Picture Game, #4, I thought you all might enjoy reading a little more about Maureen O'Hara and some of her thoughts on working with John Wayne.

      Here's the link:
      moharamagazine.com/users.qwest.net/%7Eaknot/features.htm#vivien

      Scrolling down just a little and you will see a button, "Features on Maureen and John Wayne" that you might enjoy.

      Happy reading!

      Cheers :D ,

    • Shootister,

      Very close to the top of the page you get to when you click on the link in my original post, there is a box that lists the editor (as well as the web designer and composer) as June Parker Beck. Beyond that, I can't tell you more, except that she is not my mother, my sister, my friend, or even a casual acquaintance of mine. It would appear she is an avid fan of Maureen O'Hara.

    • The following idea is one we saw over at the McCandles Texas forum at Yahoo. We thought it was a terrific way to honor Maureen O'Hara during the week before her birthday, and hope you'll take part.

      This Sunday August 17, 2003 will be Maureen O'Hara's 83rd birthday. I thought it would be a great Group project if we would take this week and all of us post our favorite Maureen O'Hara film memory.

      It could be from a film she did with the Duke or one of her own. I hope all of you will take the time to post your favorite memory sometime this week.


      I need to think about this one a little, so will post mine later this week.

    • Robbie (and everybody else),

      Post here, and start immediately!

      Here are some favorites from my family -

      I truly enjoyed Maureen O'Hara in McLintock - she shows a wonderful gamut of emotions between incredibly feisty and quietly soft (like when she's recalling to her daughter about her early married years).

      My wife and kids really like her role in the Disney movie The Parent Trap (1961), with Hayley Mills and Brian Keith. She is so vivacious in that one. My wife also has a soft spot in her heart for the movie The Christmas Box (1995), where Maureen O'Hara starred with Richard Thomas and Annette O'Toole.

      And we all love seeing her in Miracle on 34th Street!

    • Hello :rolleyes:
      I really enjoyed the 1998 made for TV movie "Cab to Canada" B) Maureen O'Hara portrays Katherine Eure who calls a cab in Pasadena California and ends up making the cab driver go all the way to Vancouver BC :unsure:
      This is also based on a true story :P It was again on TV about 2-3 weeks ago :huh:

    • Ms. O'Hara is one of my favorite actresses, and just loved her in almost everything. I cant' think of anything she did that I didn't like. How Green Was My Valley is most excellent with a young Rodney McDowell, and Walter Pigeon. To the Shores of Tripoli with John Payne was another good movie, also with Randolph Scott.

      Of course she was really great in Miracle on 34th Street, with a young Natalie Wood, and John Payne, and a great and I would say the best Santa Clause in Edmund Gween. Also with Natalie she starred with Fred MacMurray in Father was a Fullback, and also with Betty Lynn (Thema Lou in the Andy Griffin Show {Barney Fife's girlfriend}).

      Going on, she was also great in The Parent Trap, with Brian Keith, and Halley Mills, and also The Rare Breed with James Stewart, Brain Keith, and Halley's sister Juliet Mills. Spencer's Mountain with Henry Fonda is a classic.

      Some westerns that I really enjoyed excluding movies with Duke, is Comanche Territory with MacDonald Carey, The Redhead from Wyoming with Alex Nicol, and War Arrow with Jeff Chandler.

      Who could forget her in The Black Swan with Tyrone Power, and Anthony Quinn. And her most recent release at the silver screen as she teams up with Anthony Quinn in Only The Lonely. This costars John Candy, Alley Sheedy, James Belushi, and a cameo appearance with Macuaulay Culkin.

      I do have all these movies (mainly on VHS). I have seen them all. She is one of the tops as far as I am concerned. She should have been listed as the top 50 actresses in AFI's top stars. She is definately one of them.

      Maureen, I want to wish you a very happy birthday, and you age very beautifully. Thank you for being a part of our lives in many ways. Happy 83rd pretty lady.

      Cheers, Hondo B)

    • I agree, she may be 83, but she still does it for me. A natural beauty. One of my favorite scenes of her was in Rio Grand when the Sons of the Pioneers are singing to her character Kathleen and Duke's Sgt. York I'll take you home, Kathleen and the look in her eyes as she looks at her husband speak volumes without a word being uttered. Awsome! Happy Birthday to a great Actress and a beautiful gal. dukefan1
