Although it is one of Hitchcock's lesser films (some say one of his worst) I wish that JAMAICA INN was on the schedule. Its Maureen's first film and she makes quite an impression there. We can thank Charles Laughton for discovering and promoting Maureen. I think Maureen was very good with Tyrone Power, they matched as well as Maureen and the "Duke" . I really like THE LONG GRAY LINE, it may be my favorite film of hers.

One of the excuses generally offerred to requests that Susan Hayward get her long overdue selection as SOTM is that many of her films were for Fox. But didn't Maureen O'Hara work almost exclusivlely for Fox?

So there's something else going on. Maureen O'Hara is not only still alive, but has done a number of spots that appear on TCM. Susan Hayward is very dead, and was a thorn in the side of Hollywood insiders. Having said that, Hayward had more acting ability in her little finger than O'Hara has in her whole body... And she was just as attractive.

JAMAICA INN was not her first film-- but it was her first film as 'Maureen O'Hara' after Laughton signed her and gave her a new name. Around the time they made THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME for RKO, Laughton sold her contract to RKO, which split it with Fox.  So during the 40s, she worked exclusively for these two studios.  At the end of the decade, she signed with Universal where she would make action films...and she would also work periodically for Republic in the 50s usually for her films with Ford and Wayne, though she did one with Ray Milland and Claude Rains which Milland directed.  In the mid-to-late 50s, she was freelancing at Columbia and MGM which is when she made THE WINGS OF EAGLES and THE LONG GRAY LINE.
