Olivia D'Havilland (1916-2020)

just watched her in robin hood yesterday and remarked to a few people how insane it is that she's still alive. great actress, rip. with that said, it is extremely funny to me that people who regularly complain about "snowflakes" are so offended by someone merely implying in an offhand remark that supporting the blacklist was a bad thing to do lol. so much for free speech!

She was one of the great ones, and she was in so many wonderful movies. It's such a shame, but at least she lived a long life.

R.I.P.

Just heard of this sad news. Wonderful actress from a golden age. Goodnight sweet angel.



Rest in peace.



I have to confess that outside of Gone with the Wind, I'm really not familiar with her work, but I do know that she is a two time Oscar winning movie icon who made an indelible impact on this industry. It's so amazing that she lived to 104...unbelievable. I will start checking out some of her work.

Oh wait a minute...there's one movie you listed there I have seen...I have seen It's Love I'm After...I think I even reviewed it in my thread. Very funny movie.

a couple of those are Bette Davis films. I'm surprised you haven't seen Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte it pairs well with What Ever Happened to Baby Jane.

Ohh.. with as many old movies as you've watched, you must have seen both her and her sister, Joan Fontaine, in a number of movies. You've probably just forgotten.



I don't think I've ever seen a Joan Fontaine movie either
You must have seen The Women (1939)? What about two of Hitchcock's greats: Suspicion (1941) & Rebecca (1940) And Letter from an Unknown Woman (1948) is a great one too.
