Happy Birthday Vivien Leigh (1913 - 1967)

Forever remembered as Scarlett O'Hara, actress Vivien Leigh's birthday is today. But I recently have seen more films by Leigh that shows she was more than just Scarlett. Her performance in Waterloo Bridge is even more impressive than her stellar turn in Gone With The Wind, in my humble opinion. Anyway, Happy Birthday to this classic film icon.


  1. Monty, I agree Waterloo Bridge, is a wonderful movie. I can see why it is one of your favorites.

  2. Monty, I have always thought that her performance in A Streetcar Named Desire was just superb. I love Waterloo Bridge, too. She also did a wonderful job in Ship of Fools, brave enough to play a woman past her prime and very sad. Good post!
