Overview
Back in print for the first time in decades and featuring a new interview with the author, in celebration of her centennial birthday the delectable escapades of Hollywood legend Olivia de Havilland, who fell in love with a Frenchman and then became a Parisian
In 1953, Olivia de Havilland already an Academy Award-winning actress for her roles in "To Each His Own" and "The Heiress" became the heroine of her own real-life love affair. She married a Frenchman, moved to Paris, and planted her standard on the Left Bank of the River Seine. It has been fluttering on both Left and Right Banks with considerable joy and gaiety from that moment on.
Still, her transition from Hollywood celebrity to "parisienne" was anything but easy. And in "Every Frenchman Has One, "her skirmishes with French customs, French maids, French salesladies, French holidays, French law, French doctors, and above all, the French language, are here set forth in a delightful and amusing memoir of her early years in the City of Light.
Paraphrasing Caesar, Ms. de Havilland says, I came. I saw. I was conquered. "
