Signed publicity photo from Rio Grand signed by Maureen O'Hara

Maureen O'Hara [Maureen FitzSimons] (b. 1920). Irish-American Film Actress. Very Desirable Vintage Photograph Signed, from the 1950 John Ford Classic Western, Rio Grande, being an approximate 8 in. by 10 in. black and white publicity photograph of the stunningly attractive O'Hara wielding a pair of pistols. Boldly signed in dark fountain pen on the upper right: "Maureen O'Hara".
 
Born in Ranelagh, County Dublin, Ireland, the famously red-headed beauty is noted for playing fiercely passionate heroines with a highly sensible attitude. She often worked with director John Ford and longtime friend John Wayne. Rio Grande (1950) was the third installment of John Ford's "cavalry trilogy" (Fort Apache (1948), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949), are the first two). The chemistry between Wayne and O'Hara was unmistakable, and they went on to appear in four more films together. She has appeared in such classics as The Hunchback of Notre Dame Subsequent (1939), How Green Was My Valley (also 1941 Oscar-winner), the classic Miracle on 34th Street (1947), The Quiet Man (1952), Our Man in Havana (1960), the Disney classic, The Parent Trap (1961, one of her favorites), Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation (1962), and Spencer's Mountain (1963), before reuniting with Wayne for the boisterous Western comedy McLintock! (also 1963) and Big Jake (1971, her last with Wayne).
 
Photograph shows normal aging and handling. Overall, fine. $350.
