RIP Maureen O'Hara: Golden Age Screen Legend Dies @ 95 Comments (0)

Tumblr_mhx9o7xqki1qbewogo1_500August 17, 1920—October 24, 2015

Silver-screen legend Maureen O'Hara, iconic for her roles in the films Miracle on 34th Street (1941) and The Parent Trap (1961) has died at 95, a family spokesman has confirmed.


With the recent death of Nova Pilbeam, O'Hara had been the oldest-living Hitchock leading lady, as well as the one who starred in the earliest of his films, still alive.


O'Hara was discovered by Charles Laughton, beginning her film career in 1938 and bowing out with the 2000 TV film The Last Dance. Her last memorable feature film was Only the Lonely (1991), opposite John Candy, whom she glowingly described as one of her favorite-ever leading men, a high honor considering she worked with Laughton, John Wayne, Walter Pidgeon, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., John Payne and many more.


Considering her impact, she had a relatively few screen credits—just about 65, including TV work.


Last year, O'Hara was interviewed by Robert Osborne, and also accepted an honorary Oscar.

My list of stars 80+ who are still living has, sadly, been updated.
