O is for “Maureen O’Hara”

10262162_10203028219203026_3281330943949548293_nI chose this awesome red-head mainly because she played in the Hunchback of Notre Dame. I remember watching the old black and white version starring O’Hara as Esmeralda in it when I was in middle school and loved every minute of it.

  1. She is one of my favs and I almost wrote about her but chose Merle Oberon instead. She was such a strong actress and beautiful and was the only woman allowed with the men of John Ford’s legion when they went on John Ford’s boat. The usual was John Ford, John Wayne, Ward Bond, Harrey Carey Jnr etc.. no wives-but for Maureen O’Hara who was respected but thought of as one of the boys but never taken for one. She never drank like they did. They helped her when she would go through bad times (marriage break-up). She loved to sing and did a few records. She and John Wayne were great friends and she helped get him the Medal of Freedom when he was dying of cancer. She is still alive and was great in the Film “Only the Lonely” with John Candy-sorry that I went on but love her in this portrait-you captured her Esmeralda wonderfully

    • Once again, LOVE this comment. That’s so interesting. Out of all the women that I’ve drawn so far in this challenge, I like her the most. That’s so cool that she was always with the guys. I remember reading a quote of hers where she stated that she has always been a tomboy. Thanks so much again for the info! Always love reading your comments! And thank you so much, I’m happy you love it πŸ™‚
