Details

Season poster for the BFI's Vivien Leigh retrospective, which ran from November 2013 to January 2014.

The poster is A3 (297 x 420 mm)  and is printed on heavy stock with a slight silk gloss.

Please note that posters come unframed, and will be shipped rolled in a poster tube. 

From Kendra Bean's season introduction at the time:

In 1999, the American Film Institute named Vivien Leigh one of the 25 greatest female stars in Hollywood history. Quite an honour considering she made only 19 films in a career that spanned over 30 years, and over half of those films were British. Today she is best remembered for her Oscar-winning performances in Gone with the Wind (1939) and A Streetcar Named Desire (1951). 

...While popularity with audiences came easily, Leigh continuously fought an uphill battle to be recognised by theatre critics for her talents rather than her beauty or star status. As a perfectionist, she pushed herself to give the best performance that she was capable of giving, and then pushed herself to do better.
