LONDON, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- London's Victoria & Albert Museum has announced it acquired the Vivien Leigh Archive from her grandchildren and plans to start displaying some items this fall.

The Oscar-winning star of "Gone with the Wind" and "A Streetcar Named Desire" died of tuberculosis in 1967 at the age of 53.

"Vivien Leigh is undoubtedly one of the U.K.'s greatest luminaries of stage and screen and, along with Laurence Olivier, remains a true star of her time," Martin Roth, director of the Victoria & Albert Museum, said in a statement Wednesday. "We are thrilled to acquire her archive intact in this centenary year of her birth and to be able to make it available to the public for the first time."
