The O'Learys Arrive in Chicago This is Producer Darryl Zanuck's idea of how Mrs. Molly O'Leary and her three sons, all munching apples, first drove their covered wagon down the strip of mud called De Koven Street. The imaginary scene takes place in 1854, long before Mrs. O'Leary came into possession of the cow which may or may not have started the Chicago Fire. The O'Learys are 10 percent legend and 90 percent fancy. The ugly, raucous, booming Chicago is 100 percent authentic.
