It's a shame that such crap is out there about two beloved stars who aren't around to defend themselves. Were they perfect? Of course not. Did they have a tumultuous relationship? Yes. Was Vivien a manic depressive? Yes. But look, if you're going to write a trashy "tell all" at least write it well. Total crap. Don't waste your time or money on this unless you enjoy subpar fiction. There are a lot better books out there about Olivier and Leigh. Skip this one.

I guess I'm the only who likes this book. It's long - 700 pages - and there are so many names and backgrounds, it's difficult at times to keep it all straight. "Straight". Mmmm...not much of that in this book.

I cannot begin to express my utter disgust with this company for having the nerve to publish a book with photos and not supplying the source, not to mention that the photos still have the watermarks on them FROM the source! I think it is disgraceful that as a company they have the audacity to publish "Damn You, Scarlett O'Hara" with stolen photos. Though the photos may not necessarily be copyrighted to the source they STOLE from, they are still SUPPLIED by that source, which deserves credit.
