Well that's certainly true. Especially if you consider poor Zsa Zsa Gabor, who'll be 100 early next year. She doesn't even know that her own daughter died last year (or that she even had one). She's bedridden and is frequently hospitalized, hopefully not for another amputation. The last pic I saw of her was truly sad.

For those who live that long, they should at least know it--like de Havilland.

Olivia is an example of how we all hope to be if we live to a great old age. Sadly, many end up like poor Zsa Zsa Gabor.

One of her movies, The Snake Pit, is on TCM as I write this. The actress will be 101 years old on July 1st. Born in 1916, the same year as my Mother.

She seems to be the last one left of the golden age of Hollywood. All the ones I grew up watching are long gone and it's quite sad at times to think about. Even all the munchkins from the Wizard of Oz are gone...

Are there any others from the golden age still around?

Kirk Douglas is still alive, but he is really a star of the 40s. Olivia is the last of the 30s Golden Age stars. She is of the same era as Clark Gable and Errol Flynn. Olivia's films are still very watchable, especially my favourite of hers, 'The Heiress.'

She is last woman standing, and that must bring her great sadness. I got to meet three golden age stars. James Stewart, Mickey Rooney, and Ingrid Bergman. I wish it could have been more. They are head and shoulders above anything we have today.

Lucky you Dave, would love to have met Jimmy Stewart. very nice man... saw Mickey in his one man show.. fantastic and wish Id stayed behind to buy his CD.. but got rushed out by hubby... ...I watched the Heiress just recently and oh how I loved when she changed and told her aunt..............He came back here with the same lies. The same silly phrases. He has grown greedier with the years. The first time he only wanted my money. Now he wants my love, too. Well, he came to the wrong house. And he came twice. I shall see that he doesn’t come a third time. her facial expressions from sad to stern and intense then back again to a sad was electric.. wonderful actress and her acting at its best.. Olivia lives alone in Paris, and gives readings in the local church.. lovely woman..

Olivia de Havilland - one of my favorite actresses from the Golden Age of Hollywood. A true classy lady and exceptional actress.

She and Sir Geoffrey were actually cousins; their fathers were half-brothers.
