This is an exquisite vintage coloured postcard of Vivien Leigh as Cynthia in Fire Over England (1936), nicely signed in blue fountain pen ink across the image. There's a very light crease across a dark area in the top right corner (you can't actually see it when the postcard is viewed head on, though my scanner has chosen to exaggerate it). Some equally light album adhesion markings to the reverse but overall condition is very good.
