Louella Parsons asks Olivia De Havilland: “Do you feel your court battle with Warners will affect your chances of getting back to the screen and good pictures?”

“Certainly not,” she said. “I won and am now reading scripts, but I am not eager to start work until John leaves. You see, he’ll only be here eight weeks.”

Olivia meant Capt. John Huston, Walter’s soldier son, and she makes no secret of the fact she loves him and that they’ll marry whenever he is free to do so. We talked of how it affected our lives to have the man of our hearts overseas and not know where he is stationed.

    Olivia de Havilland a favorite actress of ours who is still going at 98 years old. Her younger sister Joan Fontaine passed away just last year. The only sisters who both had won Academy Awards. Thanks for the Louella Parsons columns that have brought these two interesting personalities to our attention. Joan Fontaine was married for a time to William Dozier. He would be an interesting person to know more about.
