Trader Faulkner recalls being paid to kiss Lady Olivier

“So much has been – and still is being – written about Vivien Leigh. I was lucky enough to know perhaps just a little of the magic and depth behind Scarlett O’Hara and Blanche DuBois. One of the 20th Century’s most beautiful and gifted actresses, Vivien was born over a century ago on 5 November, 1913.”
