Viva La Hitch and 'GWTW'

11/19/1998 at 12:00 AM EST

And on the subject of movies, British master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock -- and not French favorite Jerry Lewis -- has been named in a French opinion poll as the most influential film director of the century. He was followed in ranking by Steven Spielberg and Walt Disney. Also in France, Paris celebrated the 60th anniversary of the most popular film of all time, "Gone With the Wind," with a splashy screening and Southern-style supper afterward. The guest of honor was long-time Paris resident -- and the last surviving member of the cast -- Olivia de Havilland, 83, who played sweet Melanie. "It's ironic, isn't it?" the star told The Washington Post. "Melanie dies . . . and I didn't die. I haven't, and I don't intend to." Happy new millennium, Miss Melanie.
