Always loved his character on The Waltons. Couldn’t stand his insufferable wife Cora Beth.

Saw news clip recently showing that Olivia DeHavilland was still alive at 97. hard to believe that one of the main stars of Gone With the Wind is still kicking.

The man had to be a saint to have put up with that shrew. His character that is.

I think the two of them are still “not speaking” keeping some ancient feud going on and on. Both sister’s probably forgot what or who really started the feud in the first place. I used to have aunts like these, arguments over whose cake fell the fastest.
