With her flaming red hair and deep green eyes, O'Hara -- called at one time "The Queen of Technicolor" -- is considered one of the greatest beauties of UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfHollywood. She was so popular that many around the world began to link red hair and green eyes with Irish people, despite the fact that redheads are just as rare in Ireland as anywhere else. She was also one of Hollywood's earliest {{Action Girl}}s, donning PirateGirl garb and seizing a sword, or sporting the flimsiest of veils in Hollywood's best ArabianNightsDays style, to appear as the strong-willed heroine of quite a few {{Swashbuckler}}s.
