Maureen O’Sullivan and Johnny Weissmuller, Tarzan Escapes
Beautiful Maureen O’Sullivan was born on May 17, 1911 in Ireland, nine years before another beautiful actress named Maureen was also born in Ireland (Maureen O’Hara).
Ireland has certainly been generous to the world of films!
I don’t think I ever got parts that interested me. Well, I did occasionally, but more often than not, they did not interest me. I wasn’t the standard beauty type–it was all marvelous-looking people like Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford–and I didn’t have the glamor or whatever it is that was the style of those days, so consequently I got landed with parts that were not terribly interesting to me, and it was rather hard to be ambitious under those conditions. I probably would have fared better nowadays when looks count less. ~ Maureen O’Sullivan
