VIVIEN LEIGH
Vivien Leigh types a letter to a friend thanking them for their inquire and saying that she does not feel she needs an apartment for the two weeks she will be there.
Typed Letter signed: "& To Anna-/[illegible] please/Vivien", 1p, 5½x7. Belgravia, England, 1966 January 18. On her personal letterhead to Mr. Arnold Weissberger. Begins: "Dearest Arnold," In full: "Thank you so much for your letters of the 7th and 11th, and for so kindly enquiring about apartments. I really think it's hardly worth having one for the two weeks rehearsel [sic] time but it might indeed be very nice when we come in in [sic] April. However, that we can talk about when we see you, can't we ? [sic] The visas should be through the end of this week, according to Laurie. So, very much love to you dear Arnold and from Jack." 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. File holes at upper margin. Date stamp at upper left. Fold crease not at signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
