WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Motion picture star Vivien Leigh takes questions from the press in what is actually a confrontation with death in the summer of 1967 on everything from her dreams as a young actress in London, to impossibly landing her Academy Award winning role of Scarlett O'Hara, her love life in and out of her mentor, lover, and husband Sir Laurence Olivier's arms, on beauty, fame, destiny, Hollywood and aging, to funny, frank behind-the-scenes dishing on Gone with the Wind, A Streetcar Named Desire on stage and on film, horseplay with Marlon Brando, her affairs and sexual compulsions and their shattering effects on her marriage, her breakdown in India that led to her being flown back to Hollywood in a straightjacket, and her lifelong "companions" tuberculous and bipolar disorder that never made her lose faith in acting and love. A bold, funny, candid look at a courageous and charismatic star who continues to fascinate.
