  1. Oh! Thank you for adding a link to the Olivia interview. I did not see this!!

  2. I think the interviewer did a great job of portraying the old Hollywood glamour Ms. de Havilland exuded. She was putting on a show for her--and doing a very nice job!

  3. Your welcome.:)
    Thank you for the complement on the silent movie stars posts.

  4. i had no idea marni nixon had an autobiography! intrigued. i wish i could go to her class.

    also that olivia article is one of my favorite things ever. that's what i call style.

  5. I read the Nixon bio. when it came out. I liked it a lot--and I'm picky about biographies. She's a good storyteller, and also seems like a good egg. Great stories about Deborah Kerr, Yul Brynner and working on The King and I.

    Yes--I thought Olivia was quite classy! A real star.
