ABSTRACT. Vivien Leigh, the eclectic British actress who fascinated millions of people, was not only the beautiful woman millions adored, but also a human being craving for harmony and peace. Her determination proved to be one of the greatest weapons she possessed and it helped her fulfill her dreams. In the end, the misfortune of suffering from mental disorders, which were not granted the required importance, brought torment upon the beloved actress and on her companions. But her enormous talent and self confidence helped her go through it all, even if not having the support of the men in her life who worshiped her presence but hardly, if ever, offered care and attention. pp. 87–92
