Vivien Leigh's Screen Debut
5 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The 22 year old Vivien Leigh made her screen debut in this film. She had the looks of Jean Simmons (even though Simmons wasn't around by this time), and was obviously photogenic and could be manufactured as being voluptuous. Was she a good actress though?
