Olivia de Havilland has said that To Each His Own is one of her favorite films. Covering 27 years in the life of a woman who loved neither wisely nor well, it begins during the blitz on London. Middle-aged Jody Norris (de Havilland) is an air raid warden along with her confidante Lord Desham (Roland Culver.) When she learns that a handsome US pilot, John Lund, is in town, her thoughts flash back to an earlier time in her life, when her love affair with a dashing pilot (also played by Lund in a dual role) resulted in a life lived in secrecy. The film was a spectacular comeback for the actress after being off the screen for two years due to her legal battle seeking to end her contract with Warner Brothers. It was helmed by Mitchell Leisen with a script by the great Charles Brackett who was also Oscar nominated. Shown in celebration of Olivia de Havilland’s 103rd birthday on July 1. 35mm restored film print courtesy Universal Pictures Distribution, 122 min.
