Noh Way for counter programming purposes, here's a good piece from a writer who is not joining the Meryl Streep Julie & Julia love-in
Slate "the many accents of Meryl Streep" I wish this video was quicker and more inclusive but it's still kinda cool to hear the voices in close succession

The Spy in the Sandwich on the poetry of John Hughes writing
Finally, I neglected to spot this lengthy interview with the great Olivia de Havilland (The Heiress, Gone With the Wind and many more classics) when it was published last month. She's 93 years old and still trying to finish her memoirs. She wants people to understand what the 30s were really like in Hollywood, the sexual mores, the fame, the studio control. Unfortunately it sounds as if this book will exclude her much gossiped about multiple decades estrangement from her sister Joan Fontaine
That is one subject on which I never speak. Never.Oh gods, please let her finish this book before she passes away. One nitpicky note, though. She is not, as this article implies, the oldest living Oscar winner. I believe that's Luise Rainer who, like Olivia, is a two-time winner (The Great Ziegfeld) who is still walking this good earth. She's 99 years old.
