Hello, I just joined... here's my little into thingie...( IntroCollapse )
I'm a big Marilyn Monroe fan, mostly because my mom has always been obsessed with her. Her house is like a Marilyn museum. Ha ha. (I guess her obsession is because my mom's name is Marilyn.) Lately I've become really interested in learning more about Vivian Leigh. I hear she had some serious psychological problems, and since I'm a psych student, that fascinates me. So I'm hoping to track down a good bio of her soon.
Well, that's about it. Feel free to say hello sometime, mmmmmkay? ;)
Current Music: David Bowie, "Space Oddity"

One period in her life, Vivien had 16 Siamese cats scattered amongst her houses and flats.
Vivien's luggage remained monogrammed with VLO even after her divorce to Laurence Olivier.
Vivien never traveled abroad without her Rolls Royce. The number plate on the car read "VLO."
When Vivien was on tour in Australia in 1961, she had The Times flown out everyday so she could keep up with the crossword puzzles.
Vivien had a habit of collecting hotel postcards and stationary and writing correspondences on them when she had long left the city, state, and even the country the hotel was located in. For instance, recipents may receive New York City hotel stationary with a personal handwritten note from Vivien, but indeed she sent it while in New Zealand.
Vivien sent Christmas cards to her fans. For 5 years after her divorce from Laurence Olivier, she stopped. But, in 1965, she resumed. Fans received an Oxfam card and a Christmas 1966 photo of her newest home Tickerage Mill.
While in the USA for Ship of Fools, Vivien and Jack went once or twice to a night club. Having been tipped off by the reservations clerk, the musicians played the theme music from Gone With the Wind when Vivien arrived. All guests stood up and clapped. Vivien loved it!
Vivien did not always enjoy watching Gone with the Wind. In fact, it became quite painful: "It makes me so sad to think of that picture . . . so many of its people are dead- Clark, Leslie, Walter (Connolly), dear Hattie, Victor, and even Margaret Mitchell . . . the last time I saw the film I wept all the way through it."
Vivien collected china. At Notley, adjacent to the kitchen, was a small room lined with shelves displaying the china she had collected on her travels. Much of it was in her favorite color, white.

She did not drink: the bar at her house was stocked with ice-cream sodas.
Ginger brought her cousin Helen Brown to Hollywood, renamed her Phyllis Fraser, and guided her through a few films.
Miss Rogers was an accomplished artist and excelled at both sculpting and painting, but could never bring herself to sell any of her work.
