RIP : Maureen O'Hara

Maureen O'Hara, the beautiful, fiery redhead Hollywood actress, died last Saturday at the age of 95. She starred in mostly family films and costume / period dramas, some of which were PEPLUM-inspired films, either Swashbucklers or Arabian adventures. She recently published a biography which had some juicy tidbits in it. Fiery till the end. It's amazing that she lived such a long life. RIP.

Maureen as Esmeralda in HUNCHBACK OF THE NOTRE DAME (1939). Charles Laughton played Quasimodo.
