Famous Knitters – Olivia de Havilland

Olivia de Havilland (July 1, 1916)

I cannot find an image of Olivia de Havilland  (on the left, in the front) with knitting but I did find these stills from that pivotal scene in Gone With the Wind where the women are all doing different kinds of needlework round the table and it looks as though Mammy (Hattie McDaniel), sitting near them, is winding wool. Olivia de Havilland's character, Melanie Wilkes, appears to be crocheting but she also reads to the group as they work.

India Wilkes (Alice Rhett), on the extreme right, seems to be knitting.
