Watch the trailer for A Streetcar Named Desire
“Two of the greatest performances ever put on film”
Dir Elia Kazan
With Vivien Leigh, Marlon Brando, Kim Hunter, Karl Malden
In the sticky heat of New Orleans’ French Quarter, Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh), a small-town beauty who feels her best years are behind her, arrives at the modest apartment of her sister Stella (Kim Hunter) and her explosive husband Stanley Kowalski (Marlon Brando).
Elia Kazan’s legendary adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ play is famed for the brute and unruly power of Brando’s performance, an early expression of the ‘Method’ style of acting that had such a marked influence on American cinema over the coming decades.
