the beautiful Maureen O'Hara/••••She was one of my favorites, mostly because she frequently played opposite John Wayne, who was Daddy's favorite & mine by association. She & Patricia Neal were the only tall actresses around about then so one of them usually was cast w/Wayne. Her life was not always happy & John Ford, who frequently directed Wayne films, was a rattlesnake to work with, but she was a trooper!
Not just an actress, but a brilliant engineer and scientist whose inventions helped to fight against nazis and after the wat were ahead of time in the field of radio electronics. Among them - the cell phone some thirty years before the first appeared on sale.
