Vivien Leigh (1913 -1967) & Laurence Olivier (1907-1989) (PT88)

British stars' autographed promotional poster

British actors Laurence Olivier (1907-1989) and Vivian Leigh (1913 -1967) both starred in Fire Over England, 1937, where their close friendship turned into a love affair and, soon after, marriage.

Olivier was one of the most revered actors of the 20th Century and was nominated for an Oscar fourteen times, winning twice. Leigh, a famed beauty, was also hugely successful. She starred in a number of hit movies and theatre productions, including A Streetcar Named Desire and Gone with the Wind.

In 1948 the couple toured Australia and New Zealand to raise funds for the Old Vic theatre. The highly successful six-month tour included performances of Richard III.
