What Luise Rainier and Vivien Leigh have in common
A Happy 100th Birthday (wow!) to lovely Luise Rainier, who wowed Oscar voters with her ability to cry and talk on the telephone at the same time in The Great Ziegfeld. From the looks of her at The Aviator premier she is doing well and I wish her continued health and happiness. Because of course she's going to be reading this.
Actually it's best that she doesn't because I am now going to admit that I kind of creeped on her a month ago. Because what do she and Vivien Leigh have in common?
A residence! Of course they lived in this posh flat in Belgravia at different times, but Luise passes by Vivien's blue plaque every time she comes and goes making them neighbors in a way. It's rather like Enchantment.
