Her health was very fragile for a long time and I think her relationship with Olivier was pretty tempestuous and took its toll. So she didn't make as many films as you might expect. She was stunningly beautiful though and I think her vulnerability shows in her better film roles. Waterloo Bridge and Ship of Fools from either end of her career are worth a look if you come across them but GWTW and Streetcar are her best

The book I mentioned above (tho how true is a

Esp the clashes between her Clark gable some very unpleasant stuff about Danny Kaye as well
But the really bad girl was taullah Bankhead
She even said she was known as " on
Your back tulla back home " she once told a startled uk press

Any mention of what her relationship with Marlon Brando was like?
I'm a big fan of his
