The word “legendary” really does apply to actress Maureen O’Hara — one of Old Hollywood’s best and most popular actresses.

She moved to Boise a year ago to live a quiet life, but she will be partying on her 93rd birthday at a film retrospective and benefit dinner Aug. 17. The event is from 10 a.m. to midnight on Aug. 17 at the Egyptian Theatre (700 W. Main St., Boise).

You can see some of O’Hara’s best films, including “The Quiet Man,” which O’Hara will introduce.
