A Streetcar Named Desire Film Poster


Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh combine with director Elia Kazan for the definitive screen adaptation of Tennessee Williams' steamy slice of Southern melo-theatre. Tensions rise when flaky Blanche Dubois (Leigh) moves into a claustrophobic New Orleans tenement with her sister Stella (Kim Hunter) and her brutish husband Stanley (Brando). You can cut the atmosphere with a knife as both sisters fall victim to Brando's animal attraction. Leigh, Hunter and co-star Karl Malden won Oscars for their sterling performances, but it's Brando everyone remembers. "Stellaaaaa!"
