Today, August 18, is Vivien Leigh‘s day on Turner Classic Movies. Among the films Robert Osborne is presenting is Fire Over England (see Rick’s Flicks; click on Vivien Leigh, then Film #5). It is possible that her great beauty in this film — and her impeccable handling of historical costume — may have helped lead to her choice as Scarlett O’Hara.
Another gem in the program: St. Martin’s Lane in which she portrays a London sidewalk busker. Rex Harrison, Charles Laughton and Tyrone Guthrie(!) co-star, but SHE is the show.
NEXT REGULAR POST Friday August 21.
