TCM To Celebrate Legendary Actress Olivia de Havilland

A 24-Hour programming tribute to Olivia de Havilland will air on August 23rd with Summer Under The Stars.

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will celebrate the life and career of iconic actress Olivia de Havilland with a 24-hour programming tribute on Sunday, August 23 as part of its Summer Under The Stars series. De Havilland, who passed away on July 26 at the age of 104, was known for her enduring work in the classic movie era. Acting in more than 45 feature films, she earned five Academy Award® nominations, including Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her memorable turn as Melanie Hamilton Wilkes in Gone With the Wind (1940). She earned two Academy Award® wins for Best Actress in a Leading Role for To Each His Own (1946) and The Heiress (1949).

Off screen, her enduring legacy was the establishment of the informally named “De Havilland Law”, one of the most significant and far-reaching legal rulings in Hollywood. In 1943, de Havilland filed a lawsuit against her studio, Warner Bros., after it attempted to extend her seven-year contract. De Havilland’s eventual court victory helped shift the power away from the big studios into the hands of individual stars and talent agencies.

The following is the complete schedule for TCM’s on-air tribute to Olivia de Havilland:

RETURN TO TELEVISION’S FAVORITE BEACH WITH A

SPECIALLY-PRICED DVD SET OF A GROUNDBREAKING TV SERIES SET AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF THE VIETNAM WAR

From the moment CHINA BEACH debuted in 1988, with its iconic opening credits set to the Supremes’ “Reflections” as its theme song, it was hailed as groundbreaking television. In an era of testosterone-driven war movies, the series, created by award-winning journalist and Vietnam vet William Broyles Jr. and John Sacret Young, delivered the Vietnam war from a unique perspective: that of the women, military personnel and civilians who were present during the conflict.

China Beach, part EVAC hospital, part USO entertainment center, was an outpost of craziness and compassion that captured an extraordinary group of characters — US Army doctors and nurses, officers, soldiers, Red Cross volunteers and civilian personnel — in a unique, exotic place where so many things came together: horror and laughter, heroism and sacrifice. Many episodes and story lines were based on real-life stories of those who served, stories brought to rich life by a supremely talented ensemble cast featuring many actors beginning to make their marks on the industry, including Dana Delany, Marg Helgenberger, Michael Boatman, Robert Picardo and Ricki Lake. A critically-acclaimed fan favorite during its four year run, the highly touted show and its cast were the recipients of numerous industry accolades and awards including one Golden Globe® for Best Drama (1990), a People’s Choice Award for “Favorite New Dramatic TV Program” (1989), a prestigious Peabody Award, and 29 Emmy® Award nominations in total.

This specially priced set features episode commentaries, exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes featurettes INCLUDING highlights from the 25th anniversary cast reunion PLUS deleted scenes AND a gag reel! ($64.95srp, EXCLUSIVELY AT WALMART)
