Catalogue Note

On Vivien, Coward later observed: "She was wonderful company and her wit was keen. We laughed and giggled over so many things [...] Her command of words, not always respectable ones, was remarkable, and her vehemence earth-shattering. She was a lass unparalleled" (in Dent, Vivien Leigh: A Bouquet (1969), p.62).
