Vivien Leigh as Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Directed by Tyrone Guthrie for the Old Vic Company, 1937-38 season

Costumes by Oliver Messel

Photos from Vivien Leigh’s performance in the Old Vic production of Midsummer are by far my favorite.  Oliver Messel’s costumes, the make-up, her beauty.  Perfect.  I have more rarities from this production to scan for, but I thought I would share one of my favorites here first.

As of now (4) people have had something to say...

    Breathtaking is the first word to come to mind! I wish there was a time machine because I would hop on and see her on the stage!
