The Academy-Award winning actress from the Golden Age of Hollywood Cinema may have passed on but her memory is certainly not 'Gone with the Wind'. Olivia de Havilland will live on forever. And we are pretty sure she's gonna meet her former on-screen partner Errol Flynn once again, up there. So today, we would like to take this chance to highlight our top picks for the best Olivia de Havilland movies you must see to catch up on this brilliant actress if you haven't already. Definitely a list of oldies but goodies!
If there is one movie that Olivia de Havilland is mostly known for, it would be Gone with the Wind. And it is no doubt one of her best, if not the best, movie of all time. Ladies and gents. meet Melanie Hamilton (de Havilland's character). Did you know that despite the 1400 auditionees for the role of Scarlett, de Havilland chose to audition for the role of Melanie Hamilton? And the plan was as brilliant as she was since Hamilton got a full arc in the film. You can watch the film here!
Yet, another Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland tandem amused everyone in 1938 when The Adventures of Robin Hood hit theaters. From enemies to romantic lovers slash allies, Flynn and de Havilland were the perfect cast for the film. And again, this is where de Havilland plays the role of a royal while Flynn pulls off a troublemaker.
And of course, who would forget the iconic film Captain Blood? This was the start of the on-screen chemistry of one of the best iconic pairs on the big screen: Olivia de Havilland and Errol Flynn. Just in case you wanna know, the juxtaposition of two people from different walks of life made this one of the best films the two have ever done. Imagine de Havilland buying Flynn in this film! Intriguing, right?
We thought adding a different flavor to our list of the best Olivia de Havilland movies would be interesting. So, here's de Havilland with Charles Boyer. They say the best love stories begin in the most unusual ways and it is particularly true for the two. Meet a man who marries a woman just to get his green card. But then he finds himself falling for her deeply.
