Olivia was one of the great beautys and one of the best actresses of all time. She made it look so easy. I like best that she didn't let her fame go to her head.

Hi. Phillip.

No. I haven't heard anything about her biography. In a while. I hope it's about ready to be published. They had it on presage for a while on amazon. But then took it down.

Also. I'm sure everyone has found out by now... But Cammie King passed away this past wendesday. She played Bonnie Blue Butler in Gone With the Wind

Has anyone heard anything about Olivia's autobiography? I'm sure she's finished it by now.

Just watched Captain Blood last night with Errol and Olivia. Loved it. They were one of the best screen teams in film history.

I just got done watching To Each His Own,

It was a great story about motherhood that reminded me alot of Stella Dallas(1937). de Havilland plays Jodie Norris, who through a series of accidents and mis-haps is forced to watch her son grow up from afar.

This film was distributed by Paramount and Olivia's first film after her long and victorious court battle with Warner Brothers. Her performance was brilliant and won her; the first of two academy awards, the other for the Heiress (1949). The film is told in a flashback method, and at different times in the film we see Jodie Norris as a young teenager and at others we see her as a mature adult.

The movie introduced John Lund to the screen. He played a dual role as both Jodie's lover, and the grown up version of their son. The supporting cast included Mary Anderson, Ronald Culver, Philip Terry, and Bill Goodwin. Anderson's performane really stood out; she played the jealous and over-bearing step-mother. This was probably one of the best performances of her career with the possible exception of Hitchcock's Lifeboat.

In addition to de havilland's Oscar the film was nominated for Best Writing and Original Story.

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
