Olivia de Havilland, Behind the Scenes of Gone With the Wind
The beautiful and incredibly talented Olivia de Havilland gave such a remarkable performance in Gone With the Wind that many people seem to have the impression that she was much like the character she played (Melanie). Truth be told, she had many of her wonderful, charming qualities but she actually seems to have had more Scarlett in her than Melanie!
Obviously she wasn’t conniving or mean, like Scarlett, but she was very much a strong woman who never backed down from anything or anyone.
Absolutely love the amount of spirit and strength this woman had coursing through her!
These photos of Olivia were taken behind the scenes of Gone With the Wind. She was such a beautiful actress, it’s always amazing to me when viewers are expected to accept her as the “lesser” attractive female in any scenario. Nonsense! They could try to dress her down or make her appear commonplace, but her beauty always came shining through.
