Vivien Leigh is being rescusitated NOW
Vivien Lee Gets Busy from Beyond the Grave:
DAMN YOU SCARLETT O'HARA, The Private Lives of Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier
ISBN 978-1-936003-15-0, Available November, 2010
As regards Blood Moon's upcoming biography of Miss Scarlett O'Hara and her real-life husband, (Lord) Laurence Olivier, co-authors Darwin Porter and Roy Moseley are buzzing across the phone wires comparing public vs once-secret private information about the doomed but glam, very glam pair.
That's good news for Viv and Larry fans, many of them eager for advance news about the world's most honest and unapologetic biography of the famous actors ever written.
"Their fame," according to celebrity biographer and Hollywood authority Darwin Porter, "was second in glamor only to that of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and their presence anywhere defined the event as the most desirable dinner ticket in the world. We're thrilled with the chance to collaborate on this book." (which its publisher, Blood Moon Productions of NYC, has announced as a November, 2010, release).
Rumors about the communications between the "ghost" of Vivien Leigh, as it communicated with Blood Moon's president, Danforth Prince are still being investigated. According to Prince, "All I got was a clear and very strong sense of a spirit associated with Miss Leigh that continued as a strong ongoing sense of the other-worldly for several uninterrupted hours. Its articulated wish was a commission to ensure that this biography would be properly shepherded, by me, through the writing, editorial, and marketing processes and brought to successful publication.
"Details about how the book will be phrased, organized, and constructed are now within the capable hands of its co-authors, Porter and Moseley.
"I am delighted that the artistic and business ends of this project are dovetailing nicely, and I've even accepted Miss Leigh's very clear communication as a sign that all switches for this project have been set on GO GO GO, with the full approval of most parties (both living and dead) concerned.
"Frankly," Prince continued, "when a damsel like Vivien Leigh, aka Miss Scarlett, living or dead, throws down a request for chivalry to a man with the American South running deep within his veins, what gentleman could possibly refuse?"
