An established performer both on stage and screen, she brought her simmering looks and own volatile temperament to the role helping to make it uniquely hers. Leigh had yet another memorable performance as Blanche Dubois in a Streetcar Named Desire (1951) alongside Marlon Brando resulting in another Academy Award
Leigh was ranked by the American Film institute in 1999 as the 16th greatest film actress of all time.
