TCM plans 12-film tribute to legendary actress Maureen O’Hara on Nov. 20
Turner Classic Movies will celebrate the legacy of the legendary actress Maureen O’Hara with a 24-hour film tribute on November 20.
Often referred to as the Queen of Technicolor due to her flaming red hair, the spirited Irish actress was beloved by movie audiences for over 50 years.
She was a favorite of director John Ford, appearing in such classics as the 1941 best picture winner “How Green Was My Valley” and his 1952 masterpiece “The Quiet Man,” and was frequently paired with John Wayne.
