At 18 Maureen O'Hara traveled on the Queen Mary to America, June 19, 1939.
O'Hara had met her first husband, director George Hanley Brown, while making "Jamaica Inn." When she moved to Hollywood, he remained in England and the marriage was annulled.
In 1941 she married director Will Price, with whom she had daughter, Bronwyn. "The marriage was a terrible mistake, and we divorced in 1952," she said. She remained unmarried until the late 1960s.
