Starting This Friday: Olivia de Havilland Centenary Blogathon
The Olivia de Havilland Centenary Blogathon, co-hosted by In The Good Old Days Of Classic Hollywood and Phyllis Loves Classic Movies, begins, appropriately enough, on Ms. de Havilland's 100th birthday, July 1.
Here's Olivia de Havilland, accepting her Academy Award for Best Actress from none other than Jimmy Stewart.
While only able to participate in a scant few of the numerous classic movie blogathons out there these days, we're happy to contribute a post to this 3 day look at the six decade career of Olivia de Havilland.
We at Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog will take a break from doing 16mm film presentations, don our "wordsmith" hat and review the 1937 film The Great Garrick, just one among Miss de Havilland's numerous wonderful films and among several exceptional classic movies directed in the 1930's by a favorite of Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog, James Whale (1889-1957).
