Matzen, who co-wrote the wonderful Errol Flynn Slept Here last year, explores the on and off-screen relationship between Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland . . . and provide . . . impeccable research about their films. It’s all presented in a handsome hardcover package with many rare, hitherto-unpublished photos. Anyone who loves going behind the scenes in the golden age of Hollywood will find this book compelling.” Leonard Maltin, film critic and historian
The story of Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland, famed 1930s and 40s film team, reads like juicy fiction but also happens to be true . . . Even for cinema buffs who wax poetic about Golden-Era Hollywood, this volume’s truth will exceed even the most imaginative of expectations.” Metrosource NY
Errol & Olivia is quickie tell-all. It's a big, beautiful book, full of photos from both in front of and behind the camera. If you're a fan of classic Hollywood, this book deserves a spot on your shelf. Just make sure you save a big spot.” Rockford Register Star
Robert Matzen's text is well-researched, and more serious than one might expect at first glance, for what’s essentially a glossy coffee table book about the movie team. At times Errol and Olivia reads like a novel, with the author moving his characters along parallel tracks, as he traces the history of their relationship.” Los Angeles/Orange County Arts Examiner
For anyone who is a fan of the Flynn/De Havilland pictures, as I am, this is a rare treat that you'll want to welcome to your book collection. Its a great pick up and read a chapter type book, with enough juicy stories to keep you interested through many readings. A must have for classic film fans.” www.DVDCorner.net
Those who have always seen Olivia de Havilland as the innocent virgin she often portrays on screen, largely perpetuated by her films with Flynn, will be in for a surprise, as I was . . . Matzen's book highlights many behind-the-scene tales of woe and wonder.” www.ClassicFilmFreak.com
