LARRY AND VIVIEN: THE OLIVIERS IN LOVE was first broadcast on Channel Four on September 13, 2001. It's an absorbing documentary about two superbly talented, extremely attractive and totally selfish actors.Interspersed between archive footage, old photographs and film clips are some revealing anecdotes from family and friends, the most notable being Tarquin Olivier, who delivers some icily bitter comments about his absent father. This superior documentary contains interviews with Charlton Heston, who appeared on stage with Olivier in "The Tumbler" (Chuck turned down a film with Marilyn Monroe just to act with Olivier, his favourite actor). Heston can't resist quoting Larry's "St. Crispin" lines from HENRY V. Also interviewed are John Mills, Jean Simmons, Alan Bates and Michael Gambon. This is one of the most riveting movie star documentaries I have ever seen, highly recommended.
