Favorite Website of the Week: Olivia de Havilland.net


As all of us know, there are fansites (those scary Internet black holes of animated GIFs, popup menus and the never-ending MIDI loop) and then there are websites designed by fans. Olivia de Havilland.net is the latter. This is a beautifully presented, exhaustively researched and lovingly nurtured website dedicated to de Havilland whom they call  ‘the loveliest leading lady.’

(We’re rather inclined to agree …)

The collections of photos are top quality and it has a snazzy little feature that enables you to bid on de Havilland related memorabilia on EBay while surfing the site.  Not to mention there are some truly fascinating bits and bobs of Hollywood history that could only come from truly dedicated fans, such as this terrific Lux soap ad:


(c’mon, who wouldn‘t buy Lux with an ad like this?)

Three chairs to the webmavens who have given Ms de Havilland a truly worthy website!

  1. Wow, great site. Love the lux ad. Am a big fan of Miss de Havilland. Was researching if she is doing any acting these days, and learned she narrated a documentary in 2009, here is the link in case you are interested.
