Queen of Hollywood turns 98

Colleagues and scholars from coast to coast, across Bass Strait and all the ships at sea.

The Queen of the Silver Screen, the last great star of the 1930's 'Golden Years of Hollywood', Olivia de Havilland, turns 98 today.

Stunning at 20 years old and equally stunning nearly 80 years later:



With her great friend and co-star, Errol Flynn, in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938):


Speaking about her first meeting with Errol Flynn: "Well, I was 18, and I took one look at Errol Flynn, and I thought.....oh my!"

Happy birthday, Olivia de Havilland.
