Vivien Leigh (November 5th, 1913 - July 8th, 1967) would have celebrated her 100th birthday in 2013. The British actress, who was born in India, is considered one of the great Hollywood legends.
When Vivien returned to London, at the age of seven, she was first sent to a catholic boarding school. She was a member of the theatre group as well as the school orchestra and took ballet and piano lessons. In this way her huge acting talent developed. In one of her early films she met her fellow actor Laurence Oliver and fell in love with him. They married in California in 1940.
In 1938, Vivien made her way to Hollywood, where she was offered the much desired role of Scarlett O‘Hara in the production of «Gone with the Wind». Since its world premiere, this film has netted nearly 4 billion dollars and is considered one of the most important works in the history of «moving pictures». Thanks to this film, Vivien Leigh became an overnight success. Her overwhelming acting talent in «Gone with the Wind» was honoured in 1940, when she won an Academy Award for «best actress».
About Hollywood Legends.
Despite obscurity and lack of funds, Bruno Bernard (1912-1987) set up his first darkroom in the basement of his Hollywood apartment in 1940. Shortly thereafter, he moved his studio to the famous Sunset Strip. “No one knew the name Bernard, but they all knew Hollywood“, and hence the optical trademark signature Bernard of Hollywood, which ensured the image of glamour visually for decades, was created.
Bruno Bernard was considered as “The king of Hollywood glamour” and Marilyn Monroe’s discoverer. In 1984 Bernard was the first still photographer to be honoured with an Oscar at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
