Happy 100th Olivia de Havilland, great lady and great actor, beloved as #Melanie in #gonewiththewind, for which she won #bestsupportingactress#oscar, among her dozens of other womderful roles. I was lucky to meet her once in Paris, introduced by a mutual friend. She had to her house and we had chanpagne and smoked salmon. My cousin journalist Susan Myrick was technical director of GWTW and worked with the stars as dialect coach and with producers/director on getting the “Southerness” right – which to her and Margaret Mitchells’s chagrin, they didn’t always, but it was a great movie nonetheless. #oliviadehavilland
