"When I first read ‘Gone With the Wind’ as a book I was determined to play Scarlett O’Hara and I gave up the offer of playing Katherine in Henry V, with Ivor Novello at Drury Lane to be free to go to Hollywood. Everyone said I was mad to try for ‘Gone With the Wind’ but I wanted and I knew I’d get it. The only thing I didn’t want was the seven year film contract that went with it.” (Vivien Leigh)
