“Shaw is like a train. One just speaks the words and sits in one’s place. But Shakespeare is like bathing in the sea – one swims where one wants.”

Behind the scenes of Gone With the Wind

If forced to choose I would have to assert that Vivien Leigh was the greatest screen actress of all time, and that two roles alone suffice to demonstrate her preeminence: Scarlett O’Hara and Blanche DuBois. In these two colossal performances she towers above other players like a terrible goddess amid muttering drabs. She was also among the loveliest to look upon. Her feminine charms were naturally superlative but it was her tender smile and the light in her eyes, surviving age and unhappiness, that were so touching and unforgettable.
