Silver screen icon Olivia de Havilland was once the victim of Hollywood "silent treatment" when she became one of the first film stars to shoot two projects at the same time.

The 88-year-old actress was on contract with Warner BROS when she filmed Gone With The Wind for rival studio Mgm in the late 1930s, and when there was a conflict of interests she was forced to shoot two films at the same time.

De Havilland voiced her concern to the unit manager on her historical Warner Bros film THE PRIVATE LIVES OF ELIZABETH + ESSEX and was promptly ostracised for the duration of the shoot.

She recalls, "Nobody speaks to me. The assistant director says, 'We are ready.' I don't think he even called me Miss De Havilland.

"I would come out and nobody would say good morning to me, nobody said good evening, nobody said anything beyond what they had to say."
