N.p. N.p., 1951. Vintage black and white photograph of actress Vivien Leigh on the set of the 1951 film, with actor Mickey Kuhn, about to shoot a scene. The image was shot on a Warner Brothers stage designed to look like New Orleans, ultimately combined with second unit location footage of New Orleans for the film. Here Leigh goes over the script with her assistant while technicians, her stand-in, and extras prepare for a scene. Kuhn plays a sailor in the film, and stands to her right.
The part of Blanche DuBois was originally played by Jessica Tandy on Broadway. Leigh reprised the role on the London stage, and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her subsequent performance in the film version.
