We celebrate the life and films of one of the most remarkably beautiful and talented stars of all time today, Vivien Leigh. She was born on November 5, 1913 in Darjeeling, India.
While the gifted actress is best-remembered as Gone with the Wind’s Scarlett O’Hara, her filmography is nothing short of wonderful.
A few of my favorite Vivien Leigh films (and performances) are listed below. I hope that, if you are unfamiliar with her work, you’ll seek out more of her films soon. She was truly remarkable.
- Gone with the Wind
- Sidewalks of London
- That Hamilton Woman
- Anna Karenina
- A Streetcar Named Desire
- Ship of Fools (her last film)
These publicity pictures of Vivien Leigh are from her 1938 film Sidewalks of London, directed by Tim Whelan.
