Here at the Post Office Shop, we have a large range of collectible coins and stamps which commemorate a wide range of events and themes; the Great Britons Vivien Leigh Stamp Cover is a great way to remember this remarkable actress along with four other British Greats.

This famous British actress is probably most famous for her Academy Award winning performance playing the starring role in Gone with the Wind where she played Scarlett O'Hara, the spoilt Southern Belle who fell in love with the hero Rhett Butler, played by Clark Gable. 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. She married Laurence Olivier in 1940 after the divorce of her first husband and starred with him in many film and stage productions. Vivien suffered from bipolar disorder as well as recurrent bouts of tuberculosis of which she died from in July 1967.

The Great Britons Stamp Cover focuses on Vivien Leigh and features a focal image of Twelve Oaks from 'Gone with the Wind'. There is an inset of a passionate clinch with her co star Clarke Gable who played Rhett Butler and is Brighton Postmarked with a famous line from the end of the film ldquo;After all tomorrow is another day”.

This stamp cover also includes the following Great Britons stamps:

  • Norman Parkinson - One of the world's most celebrated portrait and fashion photographers, he famously snapped The Beatles and, in 1980, took the 'Blue Trinity' photograph of the Queen, Queen Mother and Princess Margaret to mark the Queen Mother's 80th birthday.
  • Peter Cushing - Born Peter Wilton Cushing, he was a British character actor synonymous with roles such as Van Helsing, battling Dracula in the Hammer horror series of movies, and the eccentric detective Sherlock Holmes.
  • David Lloyd George - Prime Minister from 1916 to 1922, he was one of the true radicals in politics. As Chancellor of the Exchequer, prior to the Great War, he introduced state pensions and National Insurance paving the way for the welfare state.
  • Elizabeth David - A cookery writer who studied at the Sorbonne in Paris, she became inspired by the fine cuisine, which she went on to share through a series of cookbooks.
