Vivien Leigh was very short.

About a year after I moved to Hollywood (from Seattle), I had the opportunity to visit the set of Stanley Kramer's SHIP OF FOOLS.  Everybody was working that day, including Vivien Leigh, Simone Signoret, Jose Ferrer and Lee Marvin.  And, sitting off-camera, watching the filming was Spencer Tracy.  Quite a thrill.

Another one I have is "The Hard Guy" (1930). It may

have been his first movie, only a short. I do rave about

this but when you watch it there is not a lot of difference

in his acting of then and 20 years later. He was one of the

original "naturals"!!

What an interesting group. I actually just watched

"The Power and the Glory" last week and both he

and Colleen Moore were terrific in it. I also will try

to rewatch sometime soon "Now I'll Tell". There are

some real gems among his early years.
