Vivien (and Burton and many others) Leigh

Outstanding British actress, for many years the wife of Laurence Olivier.

Leigh’s films include Fire Over England (1936), Dark Journey (1937), A Yank at Oxford (1938), Waterloo Bridge (1940), Lady Hamilton (1941), Caesar and Cleopatra (1945) and Anna Karenina (1948).

She won two Oscars – for the immortal Gone With The Wind (as Scarlett O’Hara, 1939) and for A Streetcar Named Desire (as Blanche Dubois, 1951).

This is an extraordinary show business collectable - a part page cut from a wonderful visitors' book (8.5" x 8"), signed in ink on both sides by some of the biggest stars of film and television at the time.

The first page is signed by Vivien Leigh,  Claire Bloom, Laurence Olivier and Richard Burton, with other actors also signing, including Prudence Hyman  (title role in Hammer's The Gorgon, 1964), Tom Bell and Tony Booth.

The reverse is signed by Henry Kendall, Peter Wyngarde, Paul Massie, Alan Bates, Denholm Elliott, Geoffrey Keen, Robert Flemying, Brian Reece (P.C.49), Barbara Hicks, Tommy Cooper, Dorothy Batley and Constance Lorne. A little dusty about the edges but in very good overall condition. Remarkable!
