The Death of Vivien Leigh

How Did Vivien Leigh Die?

Vivien Leigh
November 5, 1913 - July 8, 1967
"A lucky thing Eva Peron was. She died at 32. I'm already 45"

Vivien Leigh was married to Sir Laurence Olivier for twenty years. They divorced in 1960. Leigh, a diagnosed manic depressive, contracted tuberculosis in 1945. Strange, because this disease was all but obliterated in this century.

Vivien Leigh has died

Well, that's just swell. I was going to dodge the draft, but FUCK IT, I may as well go to Vietnam now. This news is so depressing. I went to see Bonnie & Clyde at the drive-in last night, but I was too depressed to enjoy it. Even listening to "Sgt. Pepper" isn't cheering me up. The Beatles have always cheered me up in the past. I hope Star Trek is not a rerun this week. I'll just die. Star Trek is the only thing in my life that I can depend on to make me feel groovy when I'm feeling bummed. Well, I like Mission: Impossible and Get Smart, too. Viv, you were one of a kind. I loved you dearly. I just don't know how I will go on. Oh well, I still have the memories. Maybe they'll play Gone With The Wind on TV one of these days.
