Re: Maureen O'Hara

Totally agree with you.  There is something very classy about women from that era.  Here's a list of beautiful women I'm sure you will appreciate - I know I do when I watch those 'old' but classic films.  ajb007/cheers

Nice to see a few Bond women get a mention - no surprise there.    ajb007/martini

Veronica Lake.

Re: Maureen O'Hara

Veronica Lake was gorgeous. Tiny in stature, too, which is one reason why she was paired with Alan Ladd in movies so often. Her career declined, I always got the impression because she was too intelligent for a Hollywood that didn't always like smart women. Alcohol also played a part, sadly.

I especially like her in I Married a Witch (1942).

Re: Maureen O'Hara

Great photo Thunderpussy . I was surprised at how many of the actors and actresses had surgery to give them that classic look , don't know if it applies to Miss O'Hara suspect she was born classy , apparently she was a gifted athlete back in her youth in Ireland.

Re: Maureen O'Hara

I always enjoyed Maureen o hara in John Waynes films,  particularly the quiet man,  I love that film.

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Re: Maureen O'Hara

Classic film , just remembered my son pinched my DVD of The Quiet Man a couple years ago and never gave it me back he can class it as his heir loom now .

Re: Maureen O'Hara

My favorite western is still Mclintock!. Maureen O'Hara and John Wayne are so great together....

She was also great in The Long Gray Line with Tyrone Power.

But, for stunning it's hard to top Ingrid Bergman....https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/c5/a8/5f/c5a85fc4aa95431ab352b98750891a72--ingrid-bergman-casablanca-casablanca-.jpg

Re: Maureen O'Hara

Great thread! I was always partial to the beautiful Simone Simon, from Cat People and Curse of the Cat People, two of Val Lewton's greatest films:

Re: Maureen O'Hara

Strange how the black and white photos seem to add to their beauty .

Re: Maureen O'Hara

There's an old photographic expression  that colour
Shows the person while black and white portraits
Show the soul.
They also knew about lighting !  To help contour  the
Face. As well as the basic rules of photographing women
Be at their eye line or slightly above. For men be slightly
Lower.

Re: Maureen O'Hara

I think it was Jimmy Stewart who said in an interview that crew members on "Rear Window" came in early or even their day off.  They just sat down and looked at Grace Kelly.....

Maybe this thread should be retitled "Izabella Stuff--Retro Edition"?

Good idea,  but perhaps it should be "Maureen Stuff"?

Re: Maureen O'Hara

On this page are my two most favorite blondes ever, Catherine Deneuve and Grace Kelly!  Per the thread title, my favorite Maureen O'Hara movie was "The Battle of the Villa Fiorita" in which she co-starred with Rossano Brazzi.

My favourite movie podcast, The Secret History of Hollywood, has been covering the career of Val Lewton in recent episodes. The one on Cat People is just amazing! You can catch it here: https://www.attaboyclarence.com/
