Rare Vivien Leigh film exists at British Film Instittute
Having had no luck in tracking down any materials on Vivien Leigh's first two films (THE VILLAGE SQUIRE, GENTLEMAN'S AGREEMENT), both 1935, I approached the British Film Institute. They inform me their National Film and TV Archive does possess a 35 mm nitrate print of THE VILLAGE SQUIRE in their collection, but have no knowledge of the existence of GENTLEMAN'S AGREEMENT. This may mean the film is lost - my opinion. British film fans are urged to scour their collections. Neither film has been released to television or video.
In 30 years (1935-1965) Vivien Leigh appeared in only 19 films, only five of which were produced in Hollywood or with Hollywood money. She made only three films in her mature years (after A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE - 1951): THE DEEP BLUE SEA, THE ROMAN SPRING OF MRS. STONE, SHIP OF FOOLS.
