I am still reeling after Olivia de Havilland's speech. Though she delivered it 8 years ago, it was new to me. She has such a way with words. And her ordeal with her stepfather mirrors mine, to a certain degree. Her writing style seems to be similar in ways to mine. Oh, I just adore her.
I really hope I can one day meet her.
Yesterday, December 15th, marked the 70-year anniversary of the premiere of "Gone With the Wind." I have been a die-hard fan of GWTW since the womb; my mother saw it when she was pregnant with me. I watched it growing up, and even at an age when I could barely grasp the deeper concepts of the film, I was spellbound. I love this film with all my heart, and it's wonderful that one of my role models played such an integral part in it's production. It gives me joy to watch the legacy of "Gone With the Wind" endure decades, and it now approaches a century. I can't wait for THAT celebration.
Peace, love, and glamour!
