The Matinee Idol

"You've got no artistic integrity, that's your trouble; this is how you
cheapen yourself...Hahlleewood!"

So drawled Noel Coward as he bid a distainful farewell to his old pal Laurence Olivier.
It was 1931, and the dashing young actor was off to Hollywood.

1938 -- A year before Wuthering Heights

1937 -- Fire Over England with Vivien Leigh. They fell in love making this film.

Pictures scanned from Premiere Magazine, May, 1996
