In praise of … Olivia de Havilland | Editorial

It is a pleasure to discover that, for de Havilland and a few other Manderley and Tara veterans, tomorrow is still another dayA careless reader of the obituaries of the actress Ann Rutherford, who died last month aged 94, might have supposed her the final survivor of the cast of the 1939 film classic Gone With the Wind, in which Miss Rutherford played Scarlett O'Hara's sister Carreen. Happily, however, several of the movie's other stars are still alive 73 years on, as the striking presence on the Guardian's list of weekend birthdays of Olivia de Havilland, who played Melanie Hamilton and who was 96 on Sunday, confirms. Miss de Havilland's longevity is remarkable in other ways too, since her equally distinguished sister Joan Fontaine, star of Alfred Hitchcock's 1940 Rebecca, is also still alive at 94. To claim that a famous feud between the two sisters may have helped fuel their mutual survival would be speculation, but it is a pleasure to discover that, for the de Havilland sisters and for a few other select Manderley and Tara veterans, tomorrow is indeed still another © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.
