How many Films did Maureen O’Hara and
John Wayne Star in Together?
“There’s only one woman who has been my friend over the years and
by that I mean a real friend, like a man would be.
That woman is Maureen O’Hara.”
-John Wayne, from ‘Tis Herself (Maureen O’Hara’s autobiography)
There’s no doubt in my mind that Maureen O’Hara and John Wayne had an undeniable onscreen chemistry, and that said, I would have sworn that I saw them in ‘countless’ movies together. Imagine my surprise when I tallied up ‘all those’ films and actually found out that…
Maureen O’Hara and John Wayne starred in FIVE films together, the first three of which were directed by the legendary John Ford.
- Rio Grande (1950), directed by John Ford, on DVD, Blu-Ray and Prime Video
- The Quiet Man (1952), directed by John Ford (Best Director Oscar), on DVD, Blu-Ray and Prime Video
- The Wings of Eagles (1957), directed by John Ford, on DVD and Prime Video
- McLintock! (1963), directed by Andrew V. McLaglen, on DVD, Blu-Ray and Prime Video
- Big Jake (1971), George Sherman, John Wayne (uncredited), on DVD, Blu-Ray and Prime Video
My Favorite? Boy, that’s a tough one — depending on my mood — but if I had to choose, I would probably have to say The Quiet Man. But don’t hold me to that 🙂 What are yours?
