Happy St. Patrick's Day

Two of my favorite Irish actors (no not John Wayne) Maureen O'Hara and Victor McLaglen.

Together in Rio Grande, Mr. McLaglen playing my favorite character of his,
Sgt. Maj. Quincannon

Ladies first, Maureen is about as Irish as they come. She was born Maureen FitzSimons
August 17, 1920 in Ranelagh, County Dublin, Ireland. She'll be 91 this year :)

Well, I just read something about Mclaglen, He's NOT Irish! But he played Irishmen in most of his movies:).He was born Victor Andrew de Bier Everleigh McLaglen December 10, 1886 in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England, UK.
How 'bout that for a name??

How to pronounced Mclaglen: Muh-clog-len, not Mack-loff-len(which I've been doing most my life:).

And a song, just finish off the day.

Just a couple more of Maureen in color to show off her hair.

"The Queen Of Technicolor"
