Yeah, it's sad to know that Joan and Olivia had a complicated relationship, with ups and downs. And by the way, Olivia's autobiography will come out next year, sure she have many interesting stories to tell.

Beautiful screencaps! And the portrait in #18 is gorgeous!

That's so exciting Olivia is writing an autobio, I had no idea!

I prefer her sister Joan Fontaine, who I believe Olivia is antagonistic towards.

Glad you like nel16, and retro, although my fovourite is Olivia, I also like Joan Fontaine, above all in her movies with Alfred Hitchcock.

Yay, more fabulous Olivia pics, thank you!

Haven't followed the gossip too closely about Olivia and Joan's relationship, but as an actress and beauty I believe Olivia definitely eclipses her sister.

You're welcome honey! You're definitely not the only fan - though she is somewhat underrated, at least on this forum. But that can be said for many Old Hollywood luminaries, sadly.

Anyhoo, found this adorable pic on eBay!

i could imagine that most people only saw her in gonwe with the wind and her errol flynn films and that that´s the reason why she´s underrated as an actress.i noticed her talent in a midsummernight´s dream.she was great and it was rightt at the beginning of her carreer.but when i saw the nsake pit last night i was really awestrucken by her performance.how brave to play a role wholly bare skinned and without a safety net (especially in the 40s,not many actresses would have dared that).the depictions of the mental asylum reminded me of frances farmer´s experiences in those instituitons.the electro shock therapies,the ice baths etc.i think snake pit gave an honest look inside mental instiutions and their practices at that time.it´s obvious that the film favoured psychotherpay/analysis as a means to treat and heal people.olivia´s character was healed by exploring her childhood-traumata.i cannot think of any other hollywood film before the snake pit that depicted such a delicate issue and gave such an open look into the secluded world of mental asylums.hollywood used to shy away from those topics much more than european film makers.as for mental illnesses the german expressionists went as far as putting the viewer right in the head of a mentally ill or troubled person,to the greatest effect-kabinett des doktor caligari and geheimnisse einer seele (also showing freudian psychoanalysis as a means to heal) or also french surrealist germaine dulac with la coquille et le clergyman (requiem for a dream used similar effects to depict drug addiction).hitchcock actually involved freudian theories in "spellbound" but the film as a whole was a failure in my opinion,eventhough the bizarre dream-scenarios created by dali himself are impressive.....omg,where did i start?with snake pit...sorry for my bla bla.great film and a brave performance by olivia

What you have written is very interesting, somnambule. And sure Olivia is an underrated actress. Most of people know her as the sweet Melanie in GWTW, but after winning the trial against Warner, she could played much better characters. Of course, it's worth the while watching The snake pit.
