Maureen O’Hara, R.I.P.

Actress Maureen O’Hara has passed away at the age of 95.

The Irish born actress appeared in movies such as The Hunchback of Notre Dame, How Green Was My Valley and Miracle on 34th Street. O’Hara frequently collaborated with John Wayne and director John Ford. The three worked together on films like The Quiet Man, Rio Grande and The Wings of Eagles. 

O’Hara would leave Hollywood for nearly two decades before returning in 1991in the John Candy movie Only The Lonely which also featured Ally Sheedy, Jim Belushi and Anthony Quinn (another of O’Hara’s frequent co-stars). After Candy’s sudden death in 1994, Belushi recalled that when the movie’s producers gave O’Hara a tiny trailer, Candy pleaded with producers to give her better accommodations. When they refused, Candy gave O’Hara his trailer while Candy slept on a cot for several nights before the producers had the good sense to provide another trailer.

Amazingly, O’Hara would never receive an Academy Award nomination. The Motion Picture Academy would rectify this last year when they bestowed her with an Honorary Oscar. The video above shows a brief excerpt of that ceremony last November.
