The Olivia de Havilland Centenary Blogathon: Wrap-up Day

We have come to the end of a glorious blogging weekend honoring the beautiful, graceful, and hugely talented Olivia de Havilland on the 100th anniversary of her birth. Here's hoping she makes it to her goal of 110!
And now, the final posts:
Stars and Letters shares some of Olivia's Correspondence in Don't Mess with Olivia de Havilland.
Musings of a Classic Film Addict gives us her Analysis of The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939).
Defiant Success explores all 8 of the films of Olivia de Havilland and Errol Flynn
Smitten Kitten Vintage takes us on the Santa Fe Trail (1940).
Movie Rob discovers a pre-1960s film he enjoyed in The Ambassador's Daughter (1956).
Pop Culture Reverie talks about the underrated To Each His Own (1946). Don't forget to sign up for her upcoming Hail to the Chief Blogathon!
I attempt to cover Olivia de Havillands TV Appearances on my other blog, Bewitched with Classic TV.
My wonderful co-host Crystal closes the blogathon with her Life Story of Olivia.
A HUGE THANK YOU to my co-host Crystal and to all of you for making this blogathon memorable!!!!
I also came across these two posts on Once Upon a Screen for Olivia's birthday: Career in Pictures and Radio Tribute.


  1. I'm about halfway through the entries, and what an impressive blogathon! Surprisingly, I've added several new-to-me movies to my Must Watch List. Great idea for a blogathon, and a terrific job!

    1. Thanks! So glad you could participate!! This Blogathon really did feel more special than usual!! I'm so glad Olivia's birthday was at the start of the month so I can decide what movies of hers I want to watch on TCM!!

  2. Thank you so much for hosting this blogathon Phyllis! It was a marvelous way to celebrate a truly special day for classic film fans. I really enjoyed being a part of it, and have loved reading the entries so far!

  3. It was a great event! I just ended reading and commenting on the entries. I'm sure a lot of love for Olivia has been shared.
