Olivia de Havilland Collection

AFA Collection - Olivia de Havilland Collection

Beginning her career in 1935, de Havilland is perhaps best known for co-starring with Errol Flynn in eight movies and for winning two Best Actress Oscars (for 1946’s “To Each His Own” and 1949’s “The Heiress”). The Olivia de Havilland Collection consists of one very unique item: a screen test for “Danton,” Max Reinhardt’s never-produced follow-up to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (1935). This 35mm nitrate reel was originally given to de Havilland by a Warner Brothers editor. In 2006, De Havilland donated the footage to the Academy Film Archive, which later preserved the film in 2012.
