Brought to Hollywood from Ireland by Charles Laughton in the late 1930s, Maureen achieved immediate acclaim for her fiery performances in The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Jamaica Inn. She remained a popular box-office draw throughout her long acting career and played opposite a host of A-list actors including John Wayne, Tyrone Power, Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart.
