Vivien Leigh is holding her last press conference in a theatre, taking questions from members of the press ...... but it is an illusion, a metaphor for the kaleidoscope of memories that cascade through her consciousness moments before her death at 53. We learn her thoughts on the five stages of an actress' professional life as well as the specifics of her own career, often in her own words: the serendipitous details of her rise to fame, including the impossible landing of the role of Scarlett O'Hara; her love life in and out if the arms of Laurence Olivier, the greatest actor of the last century; behind—the—scenes looks at A Streetcar Named Desire and Gone with the Wind —and the physical and mental illnesses that tortured her throughout her life and led to terrible icon and motion picture legend, ViVIEN LEIGH: THE LAST PRESS CONFERENCE captures the woman behind the mas. A courageous, funny and frank performer who continues to fascinate.
