    RIP Olivia de Havilland

    Maybe the last of the Golden era Hollywood legends has passed at 104. Loved the films she did with Errol Flynn and many others as well.

    LADY IN A CAGE is one of my favourite flicks of the '60s.

    RIP.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    There are 7 still alive who were born in the same decade (1910s) as Dame Olivia including, the oldest, Norman Lloyd who was in the US remake of Fritz Lang's M

    She was in the media pretty prominently a couple years ago when she sued the producers of Feud for defamation. Case didn't go anywhere.

    de Havilland and Errol Flynn had a particular chemistry in their films, you could tell they genuinely liked each other. In fact, I read somewhere that she said she would have married him if not for his drinking (which was legendary). THEY DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON, DODGE CITY, CAPTAIN BLOOD, THE CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE, THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD, SANTA FE TRAIL...just terrific films. Their final film together, THEY DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON, has a truly emotional moment where Flynn as Custer says goodbye to his wife de Havilland before his fateful battle and it's absolutely gut punching as they seem to know it was the last goodbye.

    She also made a terrific, early "evil twin" film noir directed by Robert Siodmak - THE DARK MIRROR.

    To this day, The Adventures of Robin Hood remains my favourite of all adaptations.
