Product Description

God and the Angel is the first illustrated book on the 1948 Old Vic Tour of Australia and New Zealand, led by Sir Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh. Written from an Australian perspective and utilising never-before published photos from the National Library and author's collection, God and the Angel diarises a theatrical tour amidst a tense post-war context. The book follows The Old Vic's tour's political and financial motivations and explores Olivier and Leigh's star couple relationship both leading up to and during their travels. This book retraces the footsteps of one of the twentieth century's most enduring star couples through a 1948 Australian landscape, through which important architecture, socialites, artists and their impacts are rediscovered.
