On October 1941 Vivien wrote Leigh:
… And my performance is not quite such graceful one! Thank you for the criticisms of the play - they all quite right - and of course the sympathy must be with Dubedat - that is where Cyril lairs a bit, but he is such a good actor he will probably improve all the time. I speak slowly in the first act because I think it gives the weight and maturity Jennifer requires. …
Lots of love darling, Viv.
