Most know Olivia de Havilland for her role as the super-sweet Melanie in Gone with the Wind (1939). Now, this golden-age leading lady is TCM’s Star of the Month ! You can watch her in TCM screenings on Fridays all through July, and we don’t think you’ll be disappointed! De Havilland’s enduring talent has left its mark on our memory in so many delightful roles, including acclaimed performances in The Heiress, To Each His Own, and The Adventures of Robin Hood. We can’t wait to revisit these and more!
This month, we’ll pair her films with a bottle of Dry Muscat. Unique, elegant, and lightly sweet (but never cloying), Dry Muscat is a delicious summer wine that pairs beautifully with the performances of this intelligent, talented, and timeless doe-eyed beauty. To read more about Olivia de Havilland and her contributions to some of the great films of the 20th century, visit TCM.com, and check out her movies on Fridays this July!
