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.
