    Simply put, I so enjoyed reading Maureen's autobiography. She is

    Simply put, I so enjoyed reading Maureen's autobiography. She is as lovely inside as she is on the outside. I've so enjoyed your movies. Of course, The Quiet Man is my all-time favorite. My husband & I have a tradition of watching once a year. I was sorry when the book ended but you betcha I'll be rereading it a few years from now just to laugh with you, and be saddened by your losses.

    A Must Read for Those into Old Hollywood Glam!

    I must admit that I would have never bothered to pick up this book had Maureen's beautiful picture on the front not caught my eye. I started thumbing through the pages and before I knew it I found myself in the book store on Chapter 2! Her book is so personal. She gives you a great feel for how life was back then. She is a strong Irish women who never forgot where she came from. I Highly recommend this book. Such a true and personal look into life as a female hollywood actress!

    A Life Story to Stir the Emotions

    I have never read an autobiography in my life. I am a 20 year old college student, and I have always loved Maureen O'Hara films. I especially liked the films that included John Wayne in the cast. The story of the actress' life presented in this book was very emotional and full. You are able to see into the real life of one of Hollywood's greatest stars. O'Hara was a strong woman and her character really shows through in her autobiography. You feel every emotion she does while reading. The book will make you laugh, curse, and cry. Sometimes in the same chapter. If you read into what O'Hara writes you can pick up on some mannerisms she has that are not fully brought out in the book. I can't express how content this book makes you feel once you have completed it. Maureen O'Hara is a person from the old Hollywood traditions and she was one of the greatest stars the production companies ever had in my view. There are not many people like O'Hara and Wayne anymore, but to be able to read their stories in their own words is something you can appreciate and cherish. I would recommend this book to anyone of any age.

    What a wonderful recollection from a classic star!

    Maureen O'Hara is one of my favorite actresses because she is a tough, strong-mind, no-nonsense Irish lass. She could hold up ranks with her favorite leading man, John Wayne, and could have a fencing duel with Errol Flynn. She is a remarkable talent and it is wonderful to hear stories from the Golden Age of Hollywood. She pours out her heart and soul about her relationships with John Ford, Charles Laughton, her late husband Will Price, John Candy, the Duke, and many other Hollywood legends. A great read for any classic Hollywood fan!

    A Treat for Fans of the Cinema That Was...

    Reviewer: rchowe from Erskine, Minnesota United States Ms. O'Hara's 'TIS HERSELF provides an intimate 'look behind the scenes' of motion pictures--and the people who made them--from Hollywood's Golden Era. Frank, funny, sad... and so much more, this memoir is a treat for fans of cinema, as it once was.
