I picked this up off ebay last year, one of the prize pieces of my collection, Olivia signed and inscribed this picture to Mervyn LeRoy! *sigh* so lovely, even her handwriting is beautiful!

watched THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD last night. there will never be another Lady Marion like Olivia, or another Robin Hood like Errol Flynn for that matter. they were tailor made for their parts and more!

It's April 24 and my birthday.  I treated myself by watching my favorite actress, Olivia De Havilland, in action in the Heiress.  Her portrayal of Catherine Sloper, before and after she was deserted by Morris Townsend (Montgomery Clift), was a masterpiece in acting.  The Academy Awards thought so too. With the hairstyles and her acting, Olivia's beauty really shines through in this movie.

From the time of a small child I have always loved Olivia. I think seeing her in "Gone With the Wind" brought her to the forefront for me. Not to mention "They Died With Their Boots On", Captain Blood, Dodge City, Santa Fe Trail, etc. I always respected her acting last year when TCM had her on for the Whole Day last August 25th...She had accomplished something I wasn't aware of the de Haviland Law. Well, I began to love her even more. She was so strong going up against a hugh film studio like Warner Bros. & Jack Warner. She is an amazing lady!

What a class actress the best of the best you couldn't take your eyes off her when she was in a scene. They don't make like that anymore. A true Beauty.

Thinks for posting that ARticle. I agree Olivia's acting is far better. I do wish that they would both reuNite. Since they're both in their nineties. One thing I've noticed is that Olivia never goes into detail about it while Joan talks about it frequently.

Her sister was very pretty too but not quite the actress.

On Dave Kehr and “Movies That Mattered”

When I was in the film program at Northwestern University in Chicago, my peers and I were required to read the works of Walter Benjamin, John Berger, Michel Foucault and even Freud, Jung and Marx. The idea was to apply their theories to the cinema to better understand how film worked, or how it related […]

To view The Private Life of Don Juan click here. Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. made his last movie in 1934. The Private Life of Don Juan was, quite accidentally, a fitting farewell to one of the first megastars of the movie industry. It wasn’t clear while filming it that it would be Fairbanks’ last movie but […]
