TCM Star of the Month Maureen O’Hara

Kicking off Tuesdays in July with TCM’s Star of the Month Maureen O’Hara we get to see her in 26 films this month. Most known for her Irish heritage and Red Hair, she commanded the screen almost instantly. She started at the top and stayed there her entire career.

With just two small films under her belt in 1938, she immediately took to the screen in 1939 with Hitchcock’s Jamaica Inn and as Esmerelda in The Hunchback of Notre Dame, both opposite superstar Charles Laughton.

Was this good fortune just the Luck o’ the Irish?

Neither!  A firm background in the performing arts, and operatic singing, she was already accepted into the famed Abbey Theater just at the age of 14, before Charles Laughton discovered her ( and her haunting eyes).

He wasn’t of course the only man mesmerized with Maureen. Voted one of the top 5 most beautiful women in the world, she was blessed with everything. And we’re so grateful that she was able to share her beauty, talents, and life with us. Thanks Maureen- much love to you:)
