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..
Great take on her performance in The Heiress; her portrayal of Catherine Sloper was so seamlessly nuanced it took my breath away.
My favorite line follows your quote.

Aunt Penniman: How can you be so cruel?

Catherine: I can be very cruel, Aunt. I was taught by masters.

Yes! One of my favorite Olivia de Havilland movies. Another one being "Not As a Stranger".

'The Heiress' is a beautiful film, great acting from all, and fabulous direction from the master, William Wyler. He was also at the helm for most of Bette Davis's best movies.

When Olivia dies it will truly be the end of the golden age of the movies.

Thank you for sharing the video, ED, and for reminding me how absolutely NUTS I was over Montgomery Clift when I was a teenager!
Of the many memorable performances of Olivia's, so many worthy performances have been forgotten. One of my particular favorites was her turn as a protective mother struggling to allow her mentally disabled daughter room to pursue love and marriage in The Light In The Piazza:

"To play de Havilland's emotionally distant father Wyler turned to Ralph Richardson, who had done the role in London. On his first day of shooting, Richardson asked Wyler how he should play a simple scene in which he comes in, hangs up his coat and awakens his sleeping daughter. When Wyler said there didn't seem to be too many different ways of doing it, Richardson astonished him by showing him six subtly different approaches to the moment. His professional poise threatened de Havilland and Clift, however. She felt he was trying to steal scenes from her by doing little bits of business in the background, not realizing that Wyler had instructed cinematographer Leo Tover to keep Richardson's bits outside the camera frame. Clift complained that Richardson never changed what he was doing from take to take, making it harder for him to try different things.

At the same time, Clift and de Havilland had their own difficulties. Although she appreciated what he was doing, the actress thought Clift was working almost totally for himself, shutting her out of their scenes together. Yet she had to acknowledge that that helped her performance, since her character felt alienated from the real world and shut out of life. Clift, however, complained that all de Havilland did was learn the lines, then show up and ask Wyler how she should play the part. This, he thought, wasn't real acting. When Wyler started giving him notes in front of the cast, Clift retaliated by staying in his dressing room with his acting coach until it was time to shoot his scenes.

That movie was everything to me as a teenage girl. The exquisite tragedy of it all.
Another movie I obsessed upon as a girl...Father of the Bride. Ms. Taylor was God's gift to the screen.
But I digress; we're talking about Ms. DeHavilland here.
