Director Elia Kazan’s powerful adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ classic play made Marlon Brando a household name for his incendiary portrayal of working-class Stanley Kowalski, who collides headlong with fragile Southern belle Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) when she moves in with Stanley and wife Stella (Kim Hunter), her sister. Brilliantly acted and mounted on every level, with Academy Awards going to Leigh for Best Actress, Hunter for Best Supporting Actress and Karl Malden for Best Supporting Actor. "A masterwork in some indefinable middle ground which is neither stage nor screen." - David Shipman
Shy hardware store clerk Christopher Walken becomes a different person when performing in local theater; new arrival Susan Sarandon is cast opposite him in “A Streetcar Named Desire” without realizing that his Stanley Kowalski is just an act. This production for TV’s “American Playhouse” series was adapted from a Kurt Vonnegut short story and features music by John Cale.
