Vivien Leigh biography, movies, and photo exhibit among centenary celebrations (photo: Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier as Emma Hamilton and Lord Nelson in ‘That Hamilton Woman’) [See previous post: "Vivien Leigh Turns 100: Centenary of One of the Greatest Movie Stars."] From November 30, 2013, to July 20, 2014, London’s National Portrait Gallery will be hosting a Vivien Leigh photo exhibit, tracing her life and career. The exhibit will be a joint celebration of both Leigh’s centenary and the 75th anniversary of Gone with the Wind. (Scroll down to check out a classy Vivien Leigh video homage. See also: “‘Gone with the Wind’ article.”) Additionally, the British Film Institute is hosting a lengthy Vivien Leigh and Gone with the Wind celebration, screening all of Leigh’s post-1936 movies, from Fire Over England to Ship of Fools — and including The Deep Blue Sea ("a digital copy of the only surviving 35mm print we were able to locate; the condition is variable").

Gwtw Screen Legend Would Have Turned 100 Years Old Today

5 November 2013 7:53 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Vivien Leigh: Legendary ‘Gone with the Wind’ and ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ star would have turned 100 today Vivien Leigh was perhaps the greatest film star that hardly ever was. What I mean is that following her starring role in the 1939 Civil War blockbuster Gone with the Wind, Leigh was featured in a mere eight* movies over the course of the next 25 years. The theater world’s gain — she was kept busy on the London stage — was the film world’s loss. But even if Leigh had starred in only two movies — Gone with the Wind and A Streetcar Named Desire — that would have been enough to make her a screen legend; one who would have turned 100 years old today, November 5, 2013.

Warner Bros. Sets Up Lord Nelson Biopic ‘Love and Glory’ (Exclusive)

11 September 2013 5:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has set up the biopic “Love and Glory,” about British Naval officer Lord Horatio Nelson.

Peter Woodward is on board to pen the script.

Nelson made a name for himself while fighting Napoleon’s forces on the Mediterranean — and for engaging in a scandalous love affair with Lady Emma Hamilton.

Gianni Nunnari is producing, with newly promoted creative exec Cate Adams overseeing for the studio.

Woodward will use source material from the John Sugden biographies “Nelson: A Dream of Glory” and “Nelson: The Sword of Albion.”

Woodward is known for his work as an actor, but his screenwriting career also includes the script to the indie “Signal Hill.”

Frank Wuliger at Gersh handled the deal for Woodward.
