After months of being enthused and sitting in high anticipation, two time Oscar winner, Olivia de Havilland, who is best known by many for her role as Melanie Hamilton in Gone With The Wind has now officially reached her monumental milestone year.

It’s not often that a notable star who held a prominent reign over Hollywood’s golden age lives to celebrate the welcoming of their 100th Birthday, but Olivia who has spent most of her time living in Paris with no existing health issues is fortunate to attain her 100th year crown. Her plethora of fans worldwide are just as excited as Olivia is, and to mark her centenary tribute, Laura from Phyllis Loves Classic Movies and myself from In The Good Old Days Of Classic Hollywood are elated to be honoring Lady Olivia on her very special day.

    I;m about halfway through reading the entries, and I’m so impressed by this blogathon. Not only that, I’ve added quite a few movies to my Must Watch List, which I never anticipated doing!

    This was a great idea, Crystal, and a wonderful tribute in itself.
