Catalogue Note

In 1953 Vivien starred alongside Larry in The Sleeping Prince at the Phoenix Theatre in London’s West End. A lavish production which told the tale of an unlikely love affair between a Prince and an actress, it would go on  to be adapted for film as The Prince and the Showgirl (1957) in which Olivier reprised his role alongside Marilyn Monroe.
