Vivien or Janet?

When I was becoming interested in movies, I'd tend to get Vivien Leigh and Janet Leigh mixed up. Now more aware of who's who, I thought this might happen to other rising movie lovers. Mind you, I'm writing this out of pure boredom not drunkenness.

Vivien: Born Vivian Mary Hartley in Darjeeling, Bengal Presidency, British India on November 5, 1913
Janet: Born Jeanette Helen Morrison in Merced, California on July 6, 1927

Notable Performance(s)
Vivien: Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind and Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire; both roles got her Oscars
Janet: Marion Crane in Psycho; role earned her an Oscar nomination

Prolific Marriage
Vivien: Laurence Olivier; marriage lasts twenty years (1940-1960)
Janet: Tony Curtis; marriage lasts eleven years (1951-1962)

Vivien: July 7, 1967, age 53
Janet: October 3, 2004, age 77

Again, I just wrote this out of pure boredom.
