A very happy birthday to the magnificent Olivia de Havilland, the last of the greats from the golden era of Hollywood.  This double Oscar winner (for “The Heiress” and “To Each His Own,” plus nominations for “Gone With the Wind,” “Hold Back the Dawn,” and “The Snake Pit”) appeared opposite Errol Flynn eight times, including “They Died With Their Boots On,” “The Adventures of Robin Hood,” and “Captain Blood.”  She also co-starred with James Cagney (“The Strawberry Blonde”), Richard Burton (“My Cousin Rachel”), and David Niven (“Raffles”).  Skilled in comedy and drama, she brought a sincerity, grace, elegance, and wit to a wide variety of roles, even appearing on an episode of “The Love Boat.”
