    Re: Olivia de Havilland

    Paul - thanks for posting this. She was/is one heck of a beautiful woman, and a beautiful personality.

    Tidbit: she is cousin to Geoffrey de Havilland, engineer and founder of the deHavilland aircraft company.

    Re: Olivia de Havilland

    After reading Tom's post about the connection to the Aircraft company, I looked here up on Wikipedia. I learned that Olivia is the older sister of actress Joan Fontaine, which I didn't know (born Joan de Beauvoir de Havilland).
