Friday is Follies day at Once Upon a Screen, but today I forego the usual, themed pictorial to honor the legendary Olivia de Havilland on her 100th birthday. I’m calling this a career retrospective in images as every single one of Ms. de Havilland’s films – from Ray Enright’s Alibi Ike (1935) to Charles Jarrott’s 1988 TV movie, The Woman He Loved, – is represented.
Bon anniversaire, Ms. de Havilland!
“There’s something about Olivia de Havilland that has always set her apart from other actresses. Maybe it’s the combination of warmth, sensitivity and intelligence she conveys, or the way her good looks have always been further enhanced by the ever-present twinkle in her eyes or the wisdom you sense behind those orbs.” – Robert Osborne
Her career in pictures…
A golden of the Golden Age.,
If you missed my previous radio tribute to Olivia de Havilland you can check it out here. There are several musts there of the old-time radio variety and I guarantee her sounds are as compelling as her sights.
