Birthday Wishes

I just wanted to step away from the silent film era for a moment and send out a warm Birthday wish to Olivia Mary De Havilland, who celebrates her 104th year today. She is one of the last surviving stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood with a career spanning over 50 years, starring with the likes of Errol Flynn, Clark Gable, and Bette Davis, before retiring in 1988. One of her best known roles was in the classic "Gone with the Wind" (1939) as Melanie Hamilton. She would receive her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actresses for the film. She would later get her first Academy win for "To Each His Own" in 1946 and her second win in 1949 for "The Heiress". Both were received under the category of Best Actress in a Leading Role. Currently, she resides in Paris, France.

"Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte" is my pick for the living legend. It's a fun, psychological thriller starring our birthday girl and Bette Davis. If you haven't seen it, strap yourself in. It's a good one! Happy Birthday once more to our Ms. De Havilland! I hope all your wishes come true!
