Vivien looks gorgeous, and her acting is so real, and quite modern in Gone With The Wind. Everybody around her is acting in typical Hollywood late 30s style, except her. She is magnificent, and is the greatest thing about the movie when watched today. IMO of course....

I agree with you. She had a certain charisma and was unique. I love her.

Did you ever get to watch Carol Burnett's old variety show in the UK?

She played Scarlett O'Hara in a spoof of "Gone With The Wind". My favourite scene is when "Scarlett"
descends the staircase, wearing her curtain-rod and dress - it's a hoot!

Sadly, Vivien had a decline physically in her later years, and died at only 53 years of age. But she left behind a couple of great acting performances. GWTW and A Streetcar Named Desire.

We never got Carol Burnett's show here in England. I don't know why....... we got practically everything else......

Didn't the late Vivien Leigh suffer from psychiatric issues, depression or perhaps she was bi-polar?

Of course, at the time, psychiatric disorders were covered up, weren't they?

Maybe her issues contributed to her special and deep way of portraying the characters that she did; that's always been my opinion, anyway.

You should check out the vid of Carol Burnett as "Scarlett".

I used to just adore British comedies. Back in the day, we had "Monty Python's Flying Circus".

I was a hen who liked to party with other hens (female teens) and roosters (male teenagers). My expressions for them. And I mean party, drugs and beer!

A couple of hen friends and I would leave the parties early on Monty Python nights, and hitchhike home to our houses to watch; we wouldn't have missed an episode of Python for anything.

Then there was Benny Hill.

And then later, Fawlty Towers and Mr. Bean!

So funny!

American comedies for the most part cannot touch the Brit ones. The only American comedies I like are the late Seinfeld and Frasier.

Even the Brit soap "Coronation Street" used to be loaded with humour. I haven't watched in a few years, but I used to roar at some of the characters and their interactions, such as Hilda and Stanley Ogden.

American soaps suck rocks.

Still gorgeous. She looks better than most women in their 80's, even some in their 70's.
