As part of Turner Classic Movies’ “Summer Under the Stars,”  Vivien Leigh is star of the day tomorrow, August 18.  Beginning at 6:00 AM (Eastern) with The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone and concluding with A Streetcar Named Desire (starting 3:45 AM), TCM will present eleven of the great actress’ films.  As he looked at her films as he sought to make his decision about the casting of Scarlett, David Selznick was apparently especially taken with her performance in A Yank at Oxford (1:30 PM).
