My message to Olivia de Havilland on the 75th Anniversary
Melanie has been a touchstone for me since I was 8 years old. As we approach the 75th anniversary of Gone With the Wind, I thank Miss de Havilland for all that she has given through Melanie and her many other roles. I also thank her for the many personal appearances and responses she has made on behalf of Gone With the Wind and her fans. Here are a few moments in the last 25 years that I have personally enjoyed!
