BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Actress Maureen O’Hara, the Irish beauty who appeared in such classic films as “The Quiet Man” and “How Green Was My Valley,” has died.

Her manager, Johnny Nicoletti, says O’Hara died in her sleep Saturday at her home in Boise, Idaho. She was 95.

O’Hara came to Hollywood to star in 1939’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” and went on to a long career. “How Green Was My Valley,” a touching 1941 drama about a Welsh mining family, won five Oscars including best picture.

She became John Wayne’s favorite leading lady, appearing with him in “The Quiet Man” and other films. And she was little Natalie Wood’s mother in the Christmas classic “Miracle on 34th Street.”

She’s survived by a daughter in Ireland.
