Happy Birthday Vivien Leigh!
Happy Birthday to the woman with the best eyebrows in classic film!
Here are some Vivien Leigh films we suggest watching with a few side notes on each film:
Gone With the Wind (1939) – Leigh’s best known film. A virtual unknown at the time, she had to beat out every major star in Hollywood to get the part.
Waterloo Bridge (1940) – Leigh’s favorite film.
That Hamilton Woman (1941) – This was reportedly Sir Winston Churchill’s favorite film.
Anna Karenina (1948) – Interesting to compare performances with Greta Garbo in the 1935 version.
A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) – Leigh also starred in the West End production of the play under the direction of husband Laurence Olivier.
