East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai

Maureen O’Hara, R.I.P.

I just learned about the passing, at the age of 95, of legendary Hollywood star Maureen O’Hara.
Nicknamed “Miss Technicolor” for her fiery red hair, she was the heroine of many swashbuckler and adventure movies, and one of the icons of my misspent youth at the parish cinema, in such swashbuckler films as The Black Swan, The Spanish Main, Sinbad the Sailor and Against all Flags.
