RIP Olivia de Havilland
On July 25, 2020, Dame Olivia de Havilland passed away. She was always one of my favorite actresses. At the age of 19, she was cast as the leading lady in only her third film, opposite another newcomer, Errol Flynn. The name of the movie was Captain Blood. The rest, as they say, is history. Above is a shot of her from one of my favorites, Princess O'Rourke, a fun little 1942 wartime comedy with Robert Cummings and Charles Coburn. Think Roman Holiday, but this time, the leading man gets to marry the princess! RIP Olivia.
