5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent restoration November 20, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
From her first pairing with Laurence Olivier in Fire Over England to her turn as an ambitious street performer in Sidewalks of London/St. Martin's Lane, it's fascinating watching Vivien Leigh develop as a screen actress in these early films for Alexander Korda.

Although all four of these titles have been released on DVD before (see the AMC boxed set that came out about 10 years ago), they were in dire need of restoration. The Cohen Film Collection stepped up to the challenge and has come through with flying colours. I had the pleasure of seeing the newly restored prints on the big screen at the BFI in London as part of their Vivien Leigh retrospective earlier this month. The picture and sound quality are really top-notch. It's like watching completely different films from what was previously available.

Bonus: the Blu-ray set is region-free, so you can watch it no matter where you live.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating look at a formidable actress's early career January 14, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Iconic actors and actresses aren't "born" out of the basics of cinema. They pay their dues, delve into and out of possible personas and production typecasts. They take risks and resort to the common and comfortable when said experiments yield insignificant results—or worse, outright industry and fan backlash. The Vivien Leigh Anniversary Collection may contain the role that convinced David O. Selznick to give the fledgling Brit a shot at Scarlett O'Hara (Fire Over England) but for the most part, it's an overview of opening volleys, a unique if often staid insight into how a beautiful ingénue is twisted and turned into something either bankable or broken. It was within these trenches where Leigh learned the ropes, established one of her more meaningful relationships (with Olivier, who she was with for over 20 years) and developed the chops that would lead to other award winning work.

Of the four films offered, Storm in a Teacup is the only true "comedy," but it's very dated and more farce-like than the screwball hits that were coming out of Hollywood at the time. The notion of a politician petitioning to have a friendly looking dog "put down" because of unpaid license fees might seem a tad intense, but everyone here plays the folly likes its fool's gold. This is probably because the entire cast is on their best behavior, turning otherwise banal banter into charming, fluffy fun. Something similar happens with St. Martin's Lane, but it's not because of our storied star. Instead, Charles Laughton walks away with this film as the struggling busker who falls for Leigh's air-headed harpy despite himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Vivien Leigh Remasters January 1, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This set is a must have for Vivien Leigh fans. Previously there have only been muddy sub zero prints of these pre Gone With The Wind Leigh films. The BFI has done wonderful restoration work on these movies-one can sit back and enjoy Vivien Leigh's versatility in four very different roles.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real treat May 10, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
It's certainly a well known fact that Vivien Leigh is both beautiful and talented. Unfortunately all we fans ever get to see of her is as Scarlett or Blanche DuBois or maybe Cleopatra. This four movie package of her earlier works is simply wonderful. Thanks to the fantastic restoration process that was done we get to see and hear this exquisite beauty as never before. Oh thank you,thank you,thank you!
