TITUS ANDRONICUS: LAURENCE OLIVIER and VIVIEN LEIGH. Photograph Mount signed: "L. Olivier" and "Vivien Leigh". B/w, 5½x7½, affixed to 8x10 sheet. Scene from Titus Andronicus, which was presented at the Stoll Theatre, London, for five weeks only, opening 1 July (no year). Olivier portrayed the title role; Leigh was his daughter, Lavinia. Also featured in the cast was Anthony Quayle. Title page of the program for the play is affixed to verso of framed display. Olivier and Leigh first performed in this play at the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, Stratford-Upon-Avon, England on August 16, 1955. British stage and screen actor LAURENCE OLIVIER (1907-1989) won a Special Academy Award for his triple effort as producer, director and actor in Henry V (1944). He won his second Oscar (for Best Actor) in 1948 for Hamlet, for which he was also nominated for the Best Director Academy Award. Olivier was also nominated for Oscars for Best Actor for Wuthering Heights (1939, the year Leigh won the Best Actress Oscar), Rebecca (1940), Richard III (1956), The Entertainer (1960), Othello (1965), Sleuth (1972) and The Boys From Brazil (1978) and nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Marathon Man (1976). In 1979, Olivier received a special Oscar for his lifetime contribution to films. As a frail beauty, British stage and screen actress VIVIEN LEIGH (1913-1967), who had been born Vivian Mary Hartley in India, appeared in only 21 films before her strenuous acting career took its toll on her health. Despite her lack of extensive film credits, Leigh won two Academy Awards for Best Actress: as Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind (1939) and as Blanche du Bois in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951). Other memorable performances include Gentlemen's Agreement (1935), the title role in Anna Karenina (1948) and her last film, Ship of Fools (1965). Leigh had met Olivier on the set of a British film, Fire Over England, in 1937, where their romance began. Married from August 31, 1940 until their divorce on December 2, 1960, the couple appeared in a number of stage productions in both London and New York. Lightly creased, touching signatures. 2 file holes at right blank margin of mounting sheet, which is slightly soiled at margins. Program page is slightly creased with mid-horizontal fold.
