RIP Maureen OHara

It is sad that many film legends are no longer with us. Most of the actors who starred with John Wayne are gone. Off the top of my head only Kirk Douglas and Ron Howard are still with us. Ohara was a close friend of Wayne along with Claire Trevor. His type was Hispanic women but apparently he did run around with Marlene Dietrich.

It was nice to see Ohara return to the screen as John Candys mom. It was sad to see John Candy go long before Ohara.
It would have been sweet to see her and Trevor in the Shootist.It was good to see Jimmy Stewart and John Caradine in the last film.

So sad to hear this. I didn't hear about it anywhere else. She was a national, or should I say international treasure. Loved her with John Wayne especially in McClintock and the Quiet Man. She's the last of the really great Hollywood stars!
