LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Tuesday announced it will honor Oscar-winning screen legend Olivia de Havilland.

The two-time Academy Award winner and five-time nominee will travel from her home in France to Beverly Hills, Calif., June 15, 2006 to be honored with an Academy Tribute at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, the Academy said in a news release.
