Vivien Leigh was born on November 5, 1913, in India, where her parents were living at the time. Before reaching the age of 10, he was already in England, in boarding schools to study. Art has always been part of her dreams, but her marriage at the age of 18, typical of the time, delayed her stage debut a little. Once it appeared in the spotlight, it was never forgotten.
Her tragic trajectory was the subject of one of my columns in CLAUDIA and I still regret that they didn’t tell her story in the movies.
From Scarlett O’Hara to Cleopatra or Lady Hamilton or Blanche Dubois or Anna Karenina. There were no limits to his talent.
On the day I would turn 108, my tribute as a fan.
