The satirical magazine,The Oldie, has named OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND as its Oldie of the Year.

Olivia was unable to attend the luncheon in London on the 2nd of February, but sent an audio message which can be heard online at the BBC. It was wonderful to hear her voice. She said,

“….How I wish I could be present at the gala  luncheon on February the 2nd……I wouldn’t even  dream of journeying to England and back to France…      Most appreciatively,Olivia de Havilland.”.

The monthly Oldie magazine was set up in 1992 to take an irreverent stand against ageism. The tongue-in-cheek awards are given annually.
