A very happy Wednesday to you all!
 
I hope y'all aren't tired of Olivia de Havilland yet, because today I have 2 wallpapers featuring her=)
 
First, Olivia in Captain Blood as...Arabella Bishop!

I LOVE this movie.  How could I not when it stars Errol Flynn as the dashing Captain Blood, and Olivia as Arabella?  I also love the book by Rafael Sabatini which the movie is based on.   This was the first of 8 films which Errol and Olivia made together, and the movie which boosted them both to stardom.

What can I say?  I love Olivia.  And the color purple:) 
 
I just saw her in Princess O'Rourke yesterday, an absolutely hilarious romantic comedy.  I laughed so hard - it's a good thing the rest of my family had gone to town, because I probably would have scared them with all of my laughing and talking! 
 
Me - "Oh, no!  If he's going to do, what I think he's going to do...*insert wild cackling*...he did!! *insert more wild cackling punctuated by an occasional snort*  Yes, I do talk to myself sometimes, and yes, I do snort when I laugh really hard.  I've learned to live with both. 
 
Disclaimer: there was one scene that some might find semi objectionable, just to let y'all know.  Olivia, as Mary, is taking a bath, and, while you can't see anything but her shoulders and up, I wouldn't have really wanted my brother to see it.  But, it's only 5 or 10 seconds long, so it's easily skipped, and the rest of the movie was so worth the watch.   Now, you're warned - I've done my duty;)
 
If you do see it, you might recognize Jean - she's played by Jane Wyman, who also played Pollyanna's Aunt Polly. 
 
(Note: the picture of Olivia in the above wallpaper was found on ebay - yes, I snatch pictures sometimes...but not to sell;)

Happy trails y'all!
