CGiii Comment

'Is he a woof?'

Possibly, the best thing that Williams ever wrote and, definitely his best film...that's due to Brando and Leigh - who are both truly mesmeric.

The repression, the latency, the insanity and the neuroses are ever-present in Williams' work - here, they actually fuse together to make a coherent story with almost believable characters.

The homoeroticism smacks you in the face without apology.

And, taken out of context, the line: I don't think I've ever tried so hard to be gay and made such a dismal mess of it - will make you scream.

The(ir) Blurb...

Blanche is in real need of a protector at this stage in her life when circumstances lead her into paying a visit to her younger sister Stella in New Orleans. She doesn't understand how Stella, who is expecting her first child, could have picked a husband so lacking in refinement. Stanley Kowalski's buddies come over to the house to play cards and one of them, Mitch, finds Blanche attractive until Stanley tells him about what kind of a woman Blanche really is. What will happen when Stella goes to the hospital to have her baby and just Blanche and her brother-in-law are in the house?
