Documentaries rarely get so personal, especially those about Hollywood types. But this involving portrayal discusses Leigh's ups (Gone with the Wind) and downs (emotional problems). There is also home movie footage as well as touching, well-edited remembrances by those who worked with her. There is even some good gossip—Garson Kanin, for one, reports Leigh and Sir Laurence Olivier already were fighting on the way to the chapel where they were married. The narration is beautifully done by the beguiling Jessica Lange.
