Über diesen Titel


At the age of twenty-six, Vivien Leigh crossed the Atlantic and walked off with the coveted role of Gone with the Wind's Scarlett O'Hara under the noses of some of Hollywood's most famous stars... Arrestingly beautiful, quick-witted, and ultimately vulnerable, Leigh has drawn the attention of many biographers. Yet with the veil of rumors and complex mythology that has grown around her name, most biographies, invariably Hollywood filmographies, have been inaccurate and incomplete. Author Higo Vickers approaches the actress as a human being--not as an entertainment property--and accords her the same detailed research that earned him high critical praise for his biography of Cecil Beaton.

From Publishers Weekly:

Vivien Leigh's life was packed with the stuff of compelling biography: beauty, talent, glamour, wit, intelligence, romance, madness. Vickers ( Cecil Beaton ), however, has gone no further in his re-creation than to organize his notes into chapters and let the tidbits speak for themselves. The biography is overstuffed with the most tangential minutiae, a cornucopia of irrelevant details and unrelated anecdotes. Fugitive quotations are dropped into paragraphs with no effort made to relate them to the surrounding information. The material is given equal weight, with nothing to anchor or tie facts together into a cohesive narrative. This is a monumentally disappointing book about one of our era's most exciting actresses.
