The Daily Mail has this breaking news:%0D
"Her marriage to Olivier was a sham, with both cheating on one another within months of becoming lovers in 1937, according to unpublished memoirs and witness accounts. At least three of the Oscar winner's lesbian conquests are revealed in 'Damn You, Scarlett O'Hara', to be published in the U.S. And, according to reports, the biography describes her insatiable appetite for 'rough trade' - male prostitutes picked up at Scotty's, a Los Angeles brothel that masqueraded as a petrol station. %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%98In the 1940s the world%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s most recognisable star would drive down to Scotty%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s with her friend George Cukor, the initial director of %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%98Gone with the Wind%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99, and they would pick out young men for the night,%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99 a publishing source said.%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%98They would pay the men with gifts such as cigarette cases, jewels or even stocks and bonds. She depended on the professional discretion of men not to boast they had just serviced Scarlett O'Hara,' Miss Leigh was apparently even kicked out of an Italian hotel for bringing back too many 'street boys'. %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%98Today, she would be diagnosed as bipolar and there are drugs that would help, but in those days people did not know how to deal with a star who tore off all her clothes and ran out of her house,' the source added. The memoir is by Darwin Porter, who knew the British actress in the 1960s, and Roy Moseley, Olivier's former assistant. 'They were both beautiful and both wanted more,' the authors say. %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%98Vivien loved to torture Olivier with her affairs, especially after she grew more mentally ill, depressed and manic.%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99 In addition to flings with British actress Isabel Jeans and two other women, Miss Leigh also cheated with co-stars Marlon Brando and Rex Harrison, they add."%0D
This sounds like made-up bullshit about people who have long been dead. If true, it would have come out long ago. The same with the constant "revelations" about Marilyn.
Ok, Vivien Leigh was a saint according to you, ok gays! Whatever!
Darwin Porter's biography on Merv Griffin was laughable . . . he had Merv bedding down with just about every well known male of the day . . . even Frank Sinatra!
OT very weird. I used to be friendly about 10 years agp with this really old dude. He was very fun and had lots of tales about LA and old time movie actors. Juicy stuff. Most names I didn't recognize nor cared about.
I remember one about his job at Scotty on Sunset (?) at a service station which he claimed really wasn't one. He'd ferry cars and numbers to the hills for clients.
Cars, because there was little parking on the roads in the hills and numbers because it was a call service. Fuck. I thought he was yanking my chain.
Maybe it was true.
Read the book "Full Service" by Scotty Bowers.
"Today, she would be diagnosed as bipolar and there are drugs that would help, but in those days people did not know how to deal with a star who tore off all her clothes and ran out of her house,'"
Actually, lithium was used to treat bipolar disorder as early as the 1940s. I wonder if anyone ever tried to get her to use it?
R4 why did you revive a thread that died over two years ago? No one cared then, no one cares now.
IF THEY DIDN'T CARE THEY WOULDN'T ANSWER, INCLUDING YOU BITCHY R14
Who 'killed'' the Paul Newman thread?
This thread does not exist any longer.
Who did that and why?
Mean people you are!
I watched The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone. I wonder if that film inspired her attraction to rough trade Italian boys. It's implied in the film that she's ultimately killed by one.
Why are all these threads fr0om 2010 being bumped? God, I hate this fycking site sometimes; it really does have some absolutely insane people. I wish it were paying members only so these freaks could be banned.
R18 you have a nasty streak. What's your problem?
You seem to have issues with the past. Stop diffusing your negativity in this room. Start Yoga, maybe. Just stop making idiotic remarks. I bet you are of these types that don't really give a damn about the content of a thread but they stuck on the date. Please, do me a favour and get your head out of your constipated ass.
Vivien Leigh was BRILLIANT, how on earth can she be bipolar? I don't believe it!
"You seem to have issues with the past. Stop diffusing your negativity in this room. Start Yoga, maybe. Just stop making idiotic remarks."
Please, by all means. . .you first.
