Two things that used to be much more interesting: practicing law, and the Los Angeles Times

This is courtesy of the LA Times Daily Mirror Blog, which "reflects on L.A.'s crime and cops from 50 years ago":

Actress Maureen O'Hara's alleged love scene with a Latin in three rear seats of Grauman's Chinese Theater was re-enacted before a spellbound audience here yesterday at the Confidential libel trial.

A witness and a buxom newspaperwoman, who volunteered her services, entwined themselves in three courtroom seats while judge, jury and spectators watched in fascination.

Opposing counsel hovered beside the players, giving conflicting directions.

"Her feet are on the floor!" protested one.

"We never said her feet were off the floor!" exclaimed the other.

Read on for the rest of the story and to see a photo of the "buxom newspaperwoman" Lee Belser.

  1. If you really want to "dig" into information on Maureen O'Hara, read her memoirs (autobiography)"Tis Herself" published in 2004 - or visit her official website at

    Other stars being slandered by "Confidential" magazine obeyed their studios advice and backed down. Not Maureen O'Hara! She put the out of businesss. I have known Maureen for over 14 years and also knew her brother, Charles FitzSimons, then a former barrister learned first-hand what really went down in that episode. Hollywood stars owe a great deal to Maureen for her crusade to bring the truth center stage for this kind of slander.
