OLIVIA de HAVILLAND Olivia de Havilland sends information on a dramatic coach in California. Typed Letter Signed: "Olivia de Havilland", 1p, 5½x8½. Hollywood, California, 1944 June 24. On her personal stationery, to Mr. Sanders. In full: "I'm sorry to be so late in answering your very gracious letter, but it arrived while I was in Aleutians, and was unfortunately mislaid. I have made inquiries here regarding a dramatic coach, and one who is highly regarded and with whom Ingrid Bergman and others study, is Nina Moise, (Mrs. Nina Moise), 6485 San Marco Circle, Hollywood. I would suggest that you write her and explain what you want and get the details directly from her. Personally I feel that New York is the greatest dramatic capitol, and there must be many fine coaches there. I can only suggest that you write one of the stars you have interviewed, or someone like McClintic of Helen Hayes, for the name of one of them. Good luck," Olivia de Havilland (1916-2020), the sister of actress Joan Fontaine, received critical acclaim and Best Actress Academy Awards for her roles in To Each His Own (1946) and The Heiress (1949). She was also nominated for an Oscar for Gone With the Wind (1939), of which she is the last surviving star, Hold Back the Dawn (1941) and The Snake Pit (1948). In addition to her acting on the stage and screen, de Havilland is known for fighting the studio system. The actress sued Warner Bros. for extending her seven-year contract by tacking on several months for which she had been suspended for refusing to take a part. Although de Havilland spent three years off the screen, she ultimately won her case, and the "De Havilland Law", as it came to be called, ensured that studios were no longer able to engage in the practice of extending contract time. Fold crease not near signature. Fine condition.
