'Tis Herself

'Tis Herself
by Maureen O'Hara [791.432 Oha]

First my daughter read it, and sent it to my mother. Then my mother read it and gave it to me. 'Tis Herself is the kind of autobiography that keeps you turning the pages. Don't skip any paragraphs or you'll miss the eavesdropped story about Mickey Rooney or the fight with Lucille Ball or the time the stunt crew trussed O'Hara up so her incision would not break open in a mudslide. O'Hara's seventy years in Hollywood stretches long past its Golden Age and she gives us all an entertaining view from the inside. So relish the book, then enjoy the movies she writes about: Miracle on 34th Street, The Quiet Man or How Green was My Valley. -- recommended by Kay V. - Bennett Martin Public Library
