A while ago, and inspired by a good friend, I took up collecting paper dolls and decided to make Tom Tierney's dolls the object of my collection. I have quite a few of his recently designed dolls in my collection to date, and I am happy with all of them. Recently, I got this particular doll from amazon.co.uk and I was surprised and delighted at the beauty of the doll. Tom Tierney is, indeed, a collector's delight, however, I am not quite sure when exactly he started designing paper dolls. The earliest of his dolls that I have seen are dated in the late 1970s, but most of the dolls I have in my collection that are designed by him, are quite recent. So, I ordered this one, dated 1981, with some trepidation. However, I am a Vivien Leigh fan, so I had to have this doll. When the book arrived on my doorstep, I was delighted to see that his ealier work is as good as his more recent dolls are. Vivien is beautifully portrayed in paper doll form and the book contains most of the beautiful dresses that are featured in the film "Gone with the Wind" as well as many other outfits from her earlier and later films too. I particularly like the designs from "Anna Karenina" and "Caesar and Cleopatra". Such is the diversity of the outfit designs in this book. If you are a collector of paper dolls and are "comming into" Tom Tierney, so to speak, then you will love this doll. I am very happy that I took the chance and ordered, what I think to be, one of his earlier paper dolls. So, if you are a Vivien Leigh fan and a collector of paper dolls I would highly recommend you get this doll added to your collection. I certainly am!

By Eleni TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 8 Nov. 2010
Format: Paperback
This lovely book was part of a birthday present for a lady who used to collect paper dolls as a child and is a Vivien Leigh fan; naturally she loved it!

The book includes a 22 cm tall Vivien Leigh paper doll and 28 costumes, both doll and costumes are colorful and printed on heavy stock paper.

The doll is beautiful and has a certain resemblance to the actress, but she could be more accurately drawn. The selection of costumes from the well known films is excellent. It includes two wonderful costumes from St Martin's Lane [1937] [DVD], one from "A Yank at Oxford", one from Fire Over England [DVD] [1937], two from "Waterloo Bridge", two from That Hamilton Woman [DVD] [1941], two from Caesar And Cleopatra [DVD] [1946], two from Anna Karenina [DVD] [1947], two from A Streetcar Named Desire [1951] [DVD], two from "The Deep Blue Sea", two from The Roman Spring of Mrs Stone, and two from the Ship Of Fools [DVD] [1965].

This paper doll captures all the most famous outfits that Vivien Leigh wore. They are beautifully drawn, and the doll does resemble the actress pretty accurately.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for Leigh fans 6 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the first of Tom Tierney's paper doll books I bought--probably a decade and a half ago!--and I've become a big fan of his paper dolls in general for their beauty and accuracy. Unlike many of his later paper dolls (Garbo, Joan Crawford, etc.) the Vivien Leigh book contains only one "doll," and the likeness, while good, doesn't quite capture her incredible beauty. (Do, however, note the brunette doll in his Southern Belle paper doll book, who is a dead ringer for Leigh--perhaps Tierney decided to have another go?) This book contains many costumes from _Gone with the Wind_--the green-sprigged dress, green velvet "drapery" dress, scandalous red dress, and mourning dress from the Atlanta bazaar sequence among them. There are also plenty of beautiful costumes from many of VL's other movies (including two from Waterloo Bridge and two from Streetcar). The color in some editions is a little washed-out (I have gone through several copies over the years!) but fans of Vivien Leigh and GWTW should really enjoy this. I only wish it could have contained _all_ VL's costumes from GWTW.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for Vivien Leigh Fans! 13 Oct. 2001
By Leigh A. Mills - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a HUGE fan of Vivien Leigh who collects her films and biographies. This was a terrific addition to my collection. The dolls and outfits are beautifully drawn, and capture various film roles including Gone with the Wind. There are even outfits in the book from never-before-released-on-video The Deep Blue Sea. Since many of her films were in black and white, it is interesting to see outfits from those films colorized. ENJOY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Beautiful 8 April 2005
By Nevada Snow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Tom Tierney's "Vivien Leigh Paper Dolls in Full Color" recreates all the highlights of this beautiful woman's long career. Fans of "Gone With the Wind" will love the costumes from this film (8 in total, but it's a pity that the ruffled white gown from the first scene is not one of them). Other excellent illustrations feature costumes from "Waterloo Bridge", "Caesar and Cleopatra", "Anna Karenina" and "A Streetcar Named Desire".
The style of illustration is classic early Tierney, with bold use of colour and superb line work. The doll closely resembles the more mature Vivien Leigh.
The plates in this book are worthy of framing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Vivien Leigh is hard to capture in image... 24 Aug. 2000
By Careen O'Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love paper dolls and always have! I found this book to be wonderful. I think Vivien Leigh's beauty is hard to capture exactly, though, and I've seen some terrible images of her in other books. But, all in all, this book is a winner! I just wish the creator would become familiar with another incredibly beautiful and talented young lady by the name of Natalia Melony , and create a paper doll of her! I think if she had been born back then, she would have given Vivien some real competition for the role of Scarlett! Paper doll lovers, I don't think you can go wrong purchasing this. And if you are a Gone With The Wind buff, you will treasure it for your collection. By the way, I was named after one of Scarlett's sisters! - Careen O'Brian
