Olivia de Havilland, Legendary Actress, Dies at 104

We’re sad to report that Olivia de Havilland, the last star of classic Hollywood and two-time Oscar winner, died peacefully in her sleep in Paris. She was 104.

The legendary actress rose to prominence in the 1930s as Errol Flynn’s imperiled lass in a series of swashbuckling adventure films like Captain Blood and The Adventures of Robin Hood, reports Entertainment Weekly.

In the early 20th century, she waged a legal battle against Warner Bros. when the studio tried to extend her seven-year contract as a penalty for refusing roles she didn’t want to do.

She eventually won. The landmark ruling is known today as the “de Havilland law.”

In real life, Olivia was a big liberal and fought against radicalism on both sides.

Her work will forever be treasured. Thank you, Olivia.
