Not all that bad, recommended viewing for Vivien Leigh fans
22 May 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

First thoughts on this were - my goodness, they (the actors portraying Leigh and Olivier) look NOTHING like them! So I was very sceptical, but they really do grow on you, or at least Mel Martin does. Even if her accent hops from American ala GWTW, to refined English, to downright Cockney. She's certainly no Vivien Leigh, but she does do a fine job of portraying the actress, I will grudgingly admit. She never shines outright, never makes you think she IS Leigh, but she plays the character very well, as does the bloke playing Peter Finch. Olivier - eh, that's another kettle of fish.

If you've read the book, this is fun to watch. Especially so if you're a Melburnian, as there's plenty of lovely shots of our city, both in the 1989 movie, as well as 1948 archive footage.
