CORNY CHRISTMAS PHOTO #2

CHRISTMAS O'SULLIVAN
This is the 1930s version of an Amazon drone delivering Christmas packages......No, really---it's none other than Tarzan's Jane, toting her holiday presents along via sled. Maybe she was ahead of her time and on to something??

This is the 1930s version of an Amazon drone delivering Christmas packages……No, really—it’s none other than Tarzan’s Jane, Maureen O’Sullivan, toting her holiday presents along via sled. Maybe she was ahead of her time and on to something?? (c) MGM

Maureen O’Sullivan was so much more than just Tarzan’s Jane! She was a mainstay of MGM in the 1930s and appeared in many quality productions for that great studio.

She was in the original Thin Man, Pride and Prejudice, and David Copperfield. Ms. O’Sullivan also starred in two classic sci-fi/horror films, Just Imagine and The Devil Doll. Not too shabby for even a partial filmography!

She was married to director John Farrow, and mother to Mia Farrow. Devoutly Catholic, Hollywood wags referred to Maureen, Irene Dunne and Loretta Young as ‘The Holy Trinity,’ as their homes were full of Catholic icons.

While O’Sullivan’s roles usually portrayed her as the very proper British young lady, she was not above being asked by studio publicists to pose for an occassional bit of seasonal art. Here she poses amid fake Hollywood snow to celebrate the Holiday season.
