ACTRESS OF THE YEAR -
For her most dazzling screen performance since Gone With the Wind,
Vivien Leigh wins a Look Achievement Award as the actress of the year
in A Streetcar Named Desire.
In her interpretation of the forlorn Southern schoolmarm Blanche DuBois, a bravura role of wide emotional
complexities, Miss Leigh decisively reaffirms her position as the most successful English actress
ever to play in America.
Currently, she and her husband
Laurence Olivier are the talk of New York
in dual stage presentation of Shakespeare's Antony
and Cleopatra and
Shaw's Caesar and Cleopatra.
