- Vivien Leigh
Alan Webb said to me that if you found yourself naked with Vivien in the Sahara Desert with absolutely nothing, twenty-four hours later you would be coming out in a Rolls-Royce, covered in minks and drinking champagne.
- David Conville.
In the thinking now of that moment the recollection of her evokes all sorts of images: quicksilver; elegance and composure, like a small Siamese cat; and the tinkling charm of a Chinese lantern.
- Olivia de Havilland
What to say.. Vivien, dear Vivien… exquisite actress, thoughtful, fearless, gracious and enormously kind… a little pink cloud floating through the lives of all her friends, hovering over the setting sun, and thinking of everyone else but herself.
- Katharine Hepburn
Vivien, you’re going to be a great star - as great as Garbo.
- John Gliddon to Vivien, 1935.
Happy 101sth birthday to Vivien Leigh, one of my most favourite actresses and a true inspiration.
