"Tara! Home. I'll go home. And I'll think of some way to get him back. After all... tomorrow is another day." Scarlett O'Hara
Played By: Vivien Leigh
Film: Gone With The Wind
Why She's On The List: One of the most famous casting searches in history produced the perfect pairing of star and role, as British stage actress Vivien Leigh rocketed to Hollywood stardom as the spoiled, wilful, well-nigh irresistible Scarlett.

Finest Hour: Swearing that she'll never go hungry again, as she sets about rebuilding Tara following the Civil War.
