Synopsis

Of British origin, born in Japan, having grown up and made a career in the United States and then moving to France, Olivia de Havilland is the most international of all stars.

She was also the one who turned the studio system upside down with her successful lawsuit against Jack Warner, when she was only 26 years old. The "de Havilland Law" relaxed the constraints that had been placed on actors under contract.

She won two Academy Awards for Best Actress, in 1947 for "To Each His Own" and in 1950 for "The Heiress. In 1965, she became the first president of the Jury of the Cannes Film Festival, twenty years after its creation.
