1. “The Interview: Olivia de Havilland.” The actress gives an inside account of the most successful film of all time.
“Vivien Leigh and I were deeply attached to George [Cukor] and secretly sought his help all during the filming. But Victor [Fleming] really was the right director for this epic. The first time we worked together was when we filmed the scene where Melanie, engaged to Ashley and therefore the future mistress of Twelve Oaks, greets Scarlett. We rehearsed and I was warm, pleasant, and polite. He drew me aside and very gently observed, ’Every word that Melanie says, she means.’ That direction was an invaluable key to her character, and it served me throughout the film. Victor, with all his virility, was sensitive and insightful.”
