Actress Olivia de Havilland Dies at 104

De Havilland’s marriage to Goodrich produced a son, Benjamin, who died of cancer at age 52, in 1991. She also had a child in 1956 with Galant, whom de Havilland divorced in 1979, though they remained friends for the rest of his life. Their daughter, Giséle, is a journalist in France.

As de Havilland’s friend, Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne, told USA Today in September 2014, on the 75th anniversary of Gone With the Wind (which marked its tenth commercial release): “[Olivia] says she had such hopes for the movie. She thought it might be shown for five or six years. It was different then. Movies played in theaters in those days — people saw it and then the movie disappeared. But this one never disappeared.”
