Olivia de Havilland in her dual role as Terry Collins and Ruth Collins in The Dark Mirror (1946).
Olivia de Havilland made several appearances on radio programs in the 1940s and 1950s reprising some of her film roles as well as performing other work.
This week, I discovered that some of her radio performances have been archived online. These are wonderful gems that give us the opportunity to hear Olivia in her various roles. Her voice, like all great actors and actresses, is so unique that you can identify her immediately. She has a wonderful lyrical quality that so many are familiar with which brings a certain warmth to the radio. What is even more amazing is her vocal range for her characters. With just her voice, she can convey every emotion required of her character. While she displays this remarkable talent in her films, her vocal range is highlighted through her radio work.
I would like to thank TallulahDahling and ErrolFlynned for uploading the wonderful radio broadcasts of our classic actors and encourage you to visit their youtube pages linked above for more radio broadcasts from actors of the classic cinema!
