Top 10 Favorite Vivien/Larry Photos from the 1930s

I love going through photos of Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh and trying to pick out my favorites.  There have been photo countdowns on this blog before, but let’s try doing it by decade this time! 😀  I’m just not feeling very creative with blog topics right now, haha.

Here are my favorite Larry/Vivien photos from the 1930s.

*I may or may not have cropped other people out of these pictures.

Capri, 1936. His shoes!

Capri, 1936. If this isn't a photo that could have come straight out of Vogue magazine circa the 1930s, I don't know what is.
Denmark, 1937. In costume for Hamlet
1937. Publicity still for 21 Days Together

London, 1937. On the set of 21 Days Together. It reminds me of a Calvin Klein perfume ad
London, 1937. On the train to Denmark to perform Hamlet with the Old Vic
Atlanta, 1939. Gone with the Wind premier
1936. Publicity still for Fire Over England
1937. Publicity still for 21 Days Together
