    One Vivien Leigh Letter and One Laurence Olivier Letter. This three-page, double-sided letter from Leigh is in black ink on her blue letterhead paper, and she writes to Jeanne De Casalis that she's "desperately disappointed" that she won't be able to do Jeanne's play Frou-Frou. It's dated simply "Tuesday," but based on content the year is most likely 1945, and signed "My love to you darling and to Stevie - Vivien." The Olivier letter is on his letterhead, typed, and dated May 23, 1950, thanking "My darling, dearest Jennie" her for her birthday greeting (they shared the same birthday), including "I do hope you had a happy day, and I pray you will have many millions more." Signed "Larry" in ink. Both letters are in Excellent condition and are fine examples of the florid (but clearly sincere) eloquence of both stars.
