Vivien Leigh 100th Anniversary Collection to be Released on Blu-ray

cohenfilmcollectionVivien Leigh would have been 100 years old this year and in celebration of that event, a four-movie set starring the star of Gone With the Wind and wife to Laurence Olivier, will be released on Blu-ray by the Cohen Film Collection.

This Blu-ray features four films that Vivian made in England prior to Gone With The Wind. The four films are:

  • the comedy of manners Storm in a Teacup (1937);
  • the period costume drama Fire Over England (1937), co-starring Laurence Olivier;
  • the romantic spy drama Dark Journey (1937);
  • and the showbiz melodrama St. Martin’s Lane (1938).

The collection coincides with the acquisition of Leigh’s personal archive by London’s Victoria & Albert Museum earlier in the year. Among the vast amount of memorabilia were photographs, scripts with Leigh’s personal notes, diaries, awards, and extensive correspondence with husband Olivier, as well as letters from the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis, Judy Garland, Arthur Miller, and even Winston Churchill.
