There are many classic films out there that still warm our hearts today. But nothing comes close to the story of Gone with the Wind.

Out of its powerful cast of great actors and actresses there is only one who’s still alive, Olivia de Havilland. Today she is 101 years old … and she looks amazing!

Congrats!

I never look like that!

Olivia de Havilland

GWTW, one of the best films and books ever made. I've read it many times and have two copies (one smaller version). Often, when you read the novel after the film, you see the actors in the characters. It's true here, and such a treat.

Ms. de Havilland, I believe, is the last actor living from the film? She was excellent. Not just in that, but in other movies as well. I saw her in one where she was nasty, nasty. And I said, "That is NOT Melanie!"

What a classy lady. And you're right, Hula, she does look amazing.

Actually, she was born on July 1, 1916. So I do not know why the news of her birthday pops up on my screen NOW. This year she will be 102, if all stays well.

De Havilland and Joan Fontaine are the only siblings to have won Academy Awards in a lead acting category. A lifelong rivalry between the two actresses resulted in an estrangement that lasted over three decades. De Havilland has lived in Paris since 1956, and celebrated her 100th birthday on July 1, 2016. In June 2017, two weeks before her 101st birthday, de Havilland was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 2017 Birthday Honours for services to drama. She is the oldest woman ever to receive the honour. In a statement, she called it "the most gratifying of birthday presents". - Wikipedia

And why is it that Mozilla Firefox hardly produces images when I specifically want them? I only get a handful, while there must be dozens. Google Chrome same thing. Only Internet Explorer produces the usual amount.
