**BREAKING NEWS** #OliviaDeHavilland, beloved star of stage and screen, woke up peacefully in her Paris apartment, this morning, aged 100. #LivviesBestLife

I know some very creative and talented people. This costume worn by Joan Fontaine in 'The Emporer Waltz' and designed by Edith Head at Paramount in 1948. It was purchased in a little poor condition with rips and tears but lovingly restored over the last few weeks for her appearance in Bendigo in September! This is one of 10 of my costumes designed by Edith Head and worn by stars including Gloria Swanson, Shirley Temple, Joan Fontaine, Dorothy Lamour and Loretta Young are currently being worked on to be at their best for their opening in September. Ticket on sale now! See you in September Bendigo Art Gallery! 🎉🎉🎉❤️ #edithhead #bendigo #bendigoartgallery #costume #costumes #joanfontaine #oliviadehavilland #museum #vintage #vintagefashion #paramountstudios #gown #vogue #style #stylish #ballgown gallery #instalike #hollywood #losangeles #newyork #brisbane #me #wow #love

From the July 1st, 1976 New York Times article "For Olivia de Havilland, a Real-Life Mother Role" | "What is Olivia de Havilland doing these days? To listen to her tell it, she is playing a supporting role to a girl she describes as a 'ravishing 19-year-old' She and Gisèle Galante, her daughter by her second husband, Pierre Galante, live in Paris and she describes her main function as answering the telephone and taking messages when her daughters many beau call. 'It's Renè, or Olivier or Bruno,' she ticks off on her fingers. 'When she gives a party, I help with the cooking. I live a vicarious existence. I went to work at 18, I never lived the normal life of a young girl.' Hollywood's 'perfect lady' (AHEM, we're looking at you Ryan Murphy...) celebrates her 60th birthday today, she is plumper and cozier than in the days she was playing virginal heroines in costume movies. In her beige silk, Chanel-like suit and neat navy pumps (Monsieur Galante wrote a biography of Mademoiselle Chanel, so I'm pretty sure it was an AUTHENTIC Chanel suit, and "PLUMPER"? how rude!) she looks like an exceptionally pretty suburban matron. The long dark hair is now short, reddish and curly and her complexion is a Technicolor dream." With a little bit of my own commentary thrown in... #OliviadeHavilland #DameOlivia #DameOliviadeHavilland #RareOliviadeHavilland #Chanel

At age 100, #OliviaDeHavilland is the oldest living #AcademyAward winner. #SunsetBoulevard #Hollywood

I feel like Cagney doesn't get enough recognition on here sometimes- so here are a few pics & gifs because i love him❤️❤️

"Baby Take a Bow" will always be one of my favorite Shirley Temple movies because it is the first one i ever saw. What about you?

" It begins with her banning him from the bedroom, an act that in the movie is reduced to the relatively trivial issue pregnancy avoidance to prevent expansion of the family wasped waist. In the book, it's clear that Scarlett, in one of two fateful meetings with Ashley at the mill, has suddenly been given reason to believe he loves her. His accusation that Rhett has coarsened and abused her, however untrue, gives her the idea. To remain faithful to this shadow lover, she orders Rhett permanently out of her bedroom, promising to lock the door. From this point on, the movie is vastly superior, a swift, stunningly violent love-hate duet, with blunt, gorgeous equivalents for the book's wordier and more genteel dance of separation . To show that nothing would stop him if he wants her, Gable kicks the door down on his way out, a frightening harbinger of the rage and desperation that will lead him to the point of nearly killing her. In the drunken scene, foreplay to the rape and more terrifying than any horror film, his huge hands surround her neck, then move up to grasp her head in a hammerlock. He longs, he says, to crush it "like a walnut" , to squeeze Ashley out of her mind and heart. Gable, less of a know it all than the book's Rhett, is shattering here, giving us a man who, for all his strength, his power and sophistication, is rendered utterly helpless by love. From then on, up and down those stairs, through the rape, the pregnancy and miscarriage, Bonnie's death- every time she relents, softens, and smiles, he either doesn't see it or mocks her. Every time he reaches out, she closes down, gets that hard look on her face. Blind pride, drunken frustration, terrible timing are responsible, but most of all, a failure of empathy on the part of Rhett, the one whose empathy has until now kep the relationship afloat. He has always been able to enter into Scarlett's consciousness, she never into his. He's been able to compensate for her tone-deafness to the language of love and it's unspoken signs. On the other hand, his very insight is a mark against him where she's concerned: he understands her too well; continued in comments -

”She was an exquisite creature. She had very beautiful manners and a very feminine way. She was also, I think capricious and a bit perverse which made her interesting of course.” Olivia de Havilland on the Gone with the Wind leading lady || #VivienLeigh #oliviadehavilland #Photography #portraitphotography #Hollywood #OldHollywood #Vintage #Classic #Actress #Beauty #Gay #Instagay #film #movies #fashion #1939 #1930s #gonewiththewind
