Maureen O'Hara as Mary Kate Danaher in 'The Quiet Man', 1952 - O'Hara is perfectly cast as the beautiful & feisty sister of the Ill-tempered Red Will Danaher. Her relationship with Sean Thornton is tempestuous at first, but slowly he learns how to win her over - Not an easy task, considering how her brother is totally against the two getting together.

Fred Schepisi's 'A Cry in The Dark', 1988 - Staring Meryl Streep & Sam Neill - This compelling docudrama, is based on the true story of Lindy & Michael Chamberlain. During a camping trip to Ayers Rock, in outback Australia, Lindy claimed that she saw a dingo stealing her baby daughter, Azaria, from the family tent. The incident drew a media firestorm, & the court case received massive attention & public reactions.
'Ice Station Zebra', 1968 - While the film was based on Allistair MacLean's, 1963 Cold War Thriller, the movie version diverges from it's original source material. The most obvious changes involved the names of the novel's characters. The submarine Dolphin became the 'Tigerish' because the real USS Dolphin, actually launched between the publication of the novel & the making of the film - It was a diesel submarine. British spy, Dr. Carpenter was renamed David Jones.
