Why did Vivien Leigh choose to appear in this picture?


The lead role is completely passive and one-dimensional. And there was some dangerous stunt work in the climax.

I can only imagine she took the role in order to give Peter Finch a 'leg-up' in the industry.

Could be, also if they were having an affair they would be together on the set everyday so no need to make any excuses to anyone
