Vivien Leigh is perhaps most famous for her portrayal of Scarlett O’Hara in the movie adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind. She was an actress who found herself in her roles. She immersed herself so much into them that she began to take on the characteristics of the person she was depicting on the silver screen. The book is based on interviews of Leigh’s family, friends, colleagues and Leigh herself.
