Let’s take this moment to appreciate the finer things in life… like Hedy Lamarr.
Favorite Classic Hollywood Couples/Romances (in no particular order) 2/22
—- Laurence Olivier & Vivien Leigh -—
“I realize that the memories I cherish most are not the first night successes, but of simple, everyday things: walking through our garden in the country after rain; sitting outside a cafe in provence, drinking the vin de pays; staying at a little hotel in an English market town with Larry, in the early days after our marriage, when he was serving in the Fleet Air Arm, and I was touring Scotland, so that we had to make long treks to spend weekends together.”
“I do not think there is a solitary second when my mind is not completely buried in you. You are really on my brain–I suppose if you happened to represent something dangerous I should be locked up–but no it’s not quite like that. I am not always thinking sweetly of you. I am thinking angrily or indignantly or sulkily, quite often, but I am never not thinking of you. More often than not I am just worried about you, concerned and distressed about my baby lamb being tired or unhappy–and of course often it is with mad, mad passion and sometimes it is naughty, sometimes, only sometimes is it dirty or even sadistic…You are all over me, in sorrow or in joy, all of the time–O yes in drunkenness too, in conversation, in work, with every breath and heart-beat.”–Letter from Larry to Vivien in 1939
“You know that whatever the dark thing is–that the slightest shadow across your life troubles me so much more than any harm to myself. You’re the only person in the world who can make hideously selfish me love anyone more than I do myself. You know don’t you my Vivien that if I try to save you disappointment or give you happiness it is only selfishness on my part really. Your sorrow is my worst fear…your life my life.”
You’re drunk, and I’m going to bed.
I’m very drunk, and I intend getting still drunker before the evening’s over. But you’re not going to bed. Not yet.
