Olivia at 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival???

Recommended Posts

I was under the impression that TCM had finally gotten Olivia de Havilland to agree to appear at their 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival, to be interviewed by Robert Osborne.

 

But looking at TCM's latest announcement of guests (glad to see Maureen O'Hara will be attending), there is no sign of Olivia:

Perhaps it was only loose talk that I her about Olivia appearing and I assumed too much. Possibly the death of her sister in December changed her plans to appear.

 

But, unless someone knows differently, that talk of Olivia appearing seems to have died. Am I wrong?

Tom,

 

There was hope that Olivia would be up for traveling from France to the City of Angels for this year's Film Festival. With TCM celebrating the 75th anniversary of *Gone With the Wind* with a screening, that added to the hope.

 

Olivia seemed to be leaning in that direction as well. But a few weeks ago, she released an announcement that she would be unable to attend.

 

According to an interview she did recently, the time difference between the two cities (not to mention the travel) is rough on her and she has a hard time adjusting to it. In the interview, she talked about how, when she returns to Paris, it takes months for her body to adjust to be backing on Paris time.

 

While disappointing for many, the festival fans seem to be taking the news well.

Thanks very much for the update, lzcutter. I can understand how travelling could be very fatiguing for someone, particularly at Olivia's advanced years.

 

Still, has the subject never arisen of Robert Osborne travelling to Paris to do a TCM interview with a friend with whom he apparently speaks every Sunday? (Assuming, of course, that Robert wouldn't mind the travel, and I can't really see that being the case since he does so much travelling now).

Tom,

 

There were reports last fall that an interview would take place but since then reports from various sources indicate that the plans didn't come together as anticipated.

 

I think the catch there is Olivia actually wanting to be interviewed about her career and her life. She's made a few overtures over the years but it seems when it comes time to actually do the interview, something gets in the way.

I do think that Olivia likes to duck and dodge some issues, and probably will to the very end (will a much discussed autobiography ever be produced and, if so, how much new will she really reveal?).

 

Olivia de Havilland, an ambitious, feisty independent who stood up to the studio system and had the courage to put her career on the line for all actors regarding the studio's seven year contracts, is also a person who long ago adopted the off screen persona of one of her favourite characters, Melanie Wilkes. And, like Melanie, she remains charming and a bit mysterious, a lady with her secrets.

 

I've always been aware of this Melanie facade with Olivia and wonder how much any of us knows the real person behind it. Therefore, when you say that some kind of obstacles have arisen to prevent an Osborne interview, the cynic in me suspects that Olivia may always find a reason why any kind of real interview just can't take place (though she will bow out in her own graciously polite Melanie kind of way, of course).

 

I'm not criticizing Olivia for choosing to address the world this way. It must be very comforting for her. For film historians, however, I rather suspect that she has deliberately been a source of frustration to them. The lady will undoubtedly take some secrets with her (which, of course, is her right) and there's not much we can do about it.

>Yes. And she does not owe us anything. Except a fine performance. And she gave many of those to us, so we have been paid in full.

 

Yes, we have been paid if full by the lady. There's no question about that.

 

Still, many fans want to see her interviewed, part of the reason for that, quite frankly, to hear what she might care to say about Errol Flynn or, ridiculous long shot, I admit, her sister. Call it the Hollywood historian in many of us, if you wish, but it's just natural to want to hear whatever the lady may care to impart to us because, and I don't mean to sound indelicate, time is running out.

Sorry to hear this wont be coming about. But I felt it was a long shot anyway due to her age. I thought Olivia wrote her memoirs a decade ago. I dont know if she decided not to publish it or wont till after her death. Maybe she changed her mind. R.O. even talked about it on the air back then (since he talks with her weekly, he should know)......

I wouldnt call it exactly a gaping hole. RO doesnt ask his subjects many personal questions. If asked, no doubt she would probably sidestep the question anyway, saying the press made too much of it, etc.......Guess we will never know.........

In recent years, whenever Olivia has given an interview, she has proven to be pretty diplomatically cagey in her responses to questions that she would rather not address.

 

If there is any interviewer that would provide a comfortable experience for her, you would think it would be Robert Osborne. He's a friend and not a man inclined to ask probing questions if he felt his interview subject was discomforted by it.

 

However, perhaps the very comfort zone that Osborne's presence would bring to an interview would make her feel more inclined to let down her guard a little and open up a little more than expected, perhaps with a reminiscence never heard before or with a comment about a former Hollywood co-worker (thinking, in particular, of Errol Flynn, the actor with whom she is associated more than any other and of whom, in regard to her, there has been so much speculation over the years).

 

Alas, it now appears increasingly unlikely that that interview will ever take place. The lady turns 98 this July. 2014 may well have been the closest that we will have ever come to it.

That's what I like about Robert Osborne doing interviews. He concentrates on being cordial to his guest, that gets them relaxed and they end up being more open and honest. And they may address issues that are otherwise a little difficult for them to discuss, but they can do it on their own terms. I believe that Olivia would certainly offer up some comment about her sister, how far she wants to go, that's up to her. And we should respect that. And like it or not, that's all we'll ever get, at least straight from her own mouth.

>Does RO generally stick his nose into these events?

 

Really?

 

When Olivia agreed to the interview at the Academy, she requested that Robert O be the interviewer.

 

The Academy and Robert O obliged.

 

There is a report in the archives from people who were at the event.

 

On another note, reports are that Olivia has been hospitalized in Paris with a lung infection:
