A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
1951. USA. Dir: Elia Kazan. With Marlon Brando, Vivien Leigh. 122 min.
Kazan brings Tennessee Williams’ legendary play to screen as a steamy, claustrophobic fever-dream. The flirtatious, unsettled scion of a decadent plantation family searches for sanctuary, but clashes with her sister’s brutish husband (Brando, in his definitive performance). Intro by Joan Miller, Head Archivist, Elia Kazan Collection.
