John Wayne as Lieutenant Colonel Kirby Yorke and Maureen O

Actors John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara had undeniable chemistry on the silver screen. However, they also had a strong mutual respect that extended to real life away from the world of cinema. O’Hara certainly had a vigor about her that wonderfully translated into her performances. She once explained that it had a part to play in making her the only leading woman “tough enough” to act alongside Wayne.

Wayne and O’Hara starred in five movies over the course of their careers. It all started with 1950’s Rio Grande, which they made along with John Ford in order to get funding for 1952’s The Quiet Man. No movie studio would touch the drama, thinking that it would be a box office disaster. The movie would ultimately make serious waves across the medium, marvelously standing the test of time.
