Mail Bag! Regarding Miss Olivia de Havilland!

29 Apr

Our own Jan van der Vliet in Spain shares with us a letter he received regarding miss Olivia de Havilland … Jan says: I received this letter 12 years ago, after writing to Olivia asking if my wife and I might stop by to say hello while in Pars … not much chance of a positive reply from complete strangers but you never know in life unless you ask! It was a lark and I didn’t really expect any reply … Olivia died on July 25, 2020 at the age of 104. Officially, she was born Olivia Mary de Havilland.

A Flood of Letters

The publication of Errol Flynn’s new book, Beam Ends, has brought a flood of letters from fans who want to make a direct purchase from the star. He has had $350 worth of orders in the last ten days. To supply them, he has to buy copies from the Los Angeles bookstores.

The postage is sometimes more than his royalty, so he actually loses money on these orders.

Jan van der Vliet shares a note he got from Olivia deHavilland’s secretary back in 2010 when he was going to Paris on a trip and thought: why not write to Olivia and see if he could stop by … knowing his chance were slim to none she would say yes, he wrote a nice letter and received this reply:


Thanks for sharing, Jan!
