Vivien Leigh Movie Favorites


Vivien Leigh's early roles were in English movies. We pick Fire Over England a historical drama set in 1587 so that you can see the first time she and Laurence Olivier appeared together.


And then came Gone With the Wind. Perfectly cast as Scarlett O'Hara, Vivien Leigh created her place in movie history.


What was Vivien Leigh's favorite role? Her part as a ballerina turned prostitute in the World War I melodrama Waterloo Bridge. Check it out.


That Hamilton Woman is the screen biography of Lady Hamilton whose love for Lord Nelson (the British naval hero) was the scandal of the day.

And then there was another famous historical couple. Caesar and Cleopatra. This is the screen version of the George Bernard Shaw play and Vivien Leigh is a perfect Cleopatra.

Most people think of Greta Garbo as Anna Karenina but we think you should see Vivien Leigh's take on the doomed Russian character.. An underrated performance.


Vivien Leigh received her second Academy Award for her role as Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire who 'always depended on the kindness of strangers"


The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone - Playing an aging actress who falls for a young gigolo, Vivien Leigh gave a performance of fragile beauty when she herself was suffering emotional turmoil.
