Happy Birthday, Olivia Mary de Havilland! (July 1, 1916)
"I would prefer to live forever in perfect health, but if I must at some time leave this life, I would like to do so ensconced on a chaise longue, perfumed, wearing a velvet robe and pearl earrings, with a flute of champagne beside me and having just discovered the answer to the last problem in a British cryptic crossword."
Happy Birthday to Olivia de Havilland! | July 1st, 1916
Playing good girls in the ’30s was difficult, when the fad was to play bad girls. Actually I think playing bad girls is a bore; I have always had more luck with good girl roles because they require more from an actress.
