Vivien Leigh married
Hubert Leigh Holman, a British barriser, in 1932, before she became famous
for her role as Scarlett O'Hara in the motion picture "Gone With The
Wind." (She only appeared in about nine films afterwards.) At some
time, she became involved with Laurence Olivier who divorced his wife Jill
Esmond on 29 January 1940. In May 1940, Oliver and Leigh
appeared at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City in a stage
production of "Romeo and Juliet." The play bombed but one member
of the cast who gained notice was Cornel Wilde. Olivier and Leigh were
married on 1 September 1940 and divorced in 1960. Ms. Leigh died in 1967
in London of tuberculosis.

||Veidt, born in
Potsdam, Germany, first appeared in films in Germany in 1917. Being
Jewish, he and his wife fled Germany in 1933 when Hitler rose to power and
settled in England where he became a British subject in 1939. In 1940, he
came to the U.S. and acted in nine American films before his death.
Perhaps his most notable role was as Luftwaffe Major Heinrich Strasser in
the classic film "Casablanca." Unfortunately, Veidt never
realized what a big hit the film "Casablanca" would become; it
is now ranked as the second best film, behind "Citizen Kane," on
the American Film Institutes top 100 films.
