Black and white publicity photograph of Vivien Leigh in her role form the play The Skin of Our Teeth.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Mr. Barry/With best wishes/Vivien Leigh". B/w, 5¾x8¼ overall, image 5¾x7¾ (one surface). Vivien Leigh (1913-1967) won Academy Awards for Best Actress as Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind (1939) and as Blanche Dubois in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951). Clark Gable was the obvious choice for Rhett Butler but, even after the filming of Gone With the Wind had begun, no one had been signed to play the part of Scarlett O'Hara. Leigh came to America in November 1938. On December 21st, she had a screen test for the Scarlett O'Hara role and on December 25, 1938 she was told by producer George Cukor that she had secured the part. On January 26, 1939, she began filming Gone With The Wind. Leigh, who was married to British actor Laurence Olivier from 1940 until their divorce in 1960, was only 53 when she succumbed to a severe bout of tuberculosis in 1967. Adequate contrast of signature. Lightly curled at edges. Stains on verso (no show through).
