Rare and exceptional vintage 3.5 x 5.5-inch English postcard portrait from Gone with the Wind (1939), boldly signed in blue fountain pen around the time of the film's release, in about 1939 or 1940. In very good condition and magnificent for display. Best known for her Oscar-winning role as Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind (1939), delicate English beauty Vivien Leigh was also marvelous in Waterloo Bridge (1940), That Hamilton Woman (1941), and Anna Karenina (1948), and snagged another Oscar for A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) in 1952. From 1940 to 1960, she was married to Laurence Olivier, with whom she appeared in a number of successful London stage productions and, in 1963, she starred in a Broadway musical adaptation of "Tovarich", for which she earned a Tony. She died tragically of tuberculosis at the age of 53.
