Olivia De Havilland Awarded Legion of Honor

One More Honor for De Havilland
Two-time Oscar-winning actress, Olivia De Havilland was awarded the Legion of Honor by French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Thursday. At 94, De Havilland is the last surving major star of Gone With the Wind (1939). Also awarded the award with her was film star Jacqueline Bisset, perhaps best know in France for her role in Francois Truffaut's Day for Night (1973).
