At the age of twenty-six, Vivien Leigh crossed the Atlantic and walked off with the coveted role of Gone with the Wind's Scarlett O'Hara under the noses of some of Hollywood's most famous stars...
Arrestingly beautiful, quick-witted, and ultimately vulnerable, Leigh has drawn the attention of many biographers. Yet with the veil of rumors and complex mythology that has grown around her name, most biographies, invariably Hollywood filmographies, have been inaccurate and incomplete. Author Higo Vickers approaches the actress as a human being--not as an entertainment property--and accords her the same detailed research that earned him high critical praise for his biography of Cecil Beaton.
