A Streetcar Named Desire (12A)
(1951) USA Black & White
Director: Elia Kazan
Starring: Marlon Brando, Vivien Leigh, Kim Hunter
A milestone of screen acting and sexuality, this adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ 1947 play set the screen alight with Marlon Brando’s fiercely naturalistic portrayal of brutal, oppressive Stanley Kowalski, shattering the Southern pieties of his sister-in-law Blanche DuBois until she begins to crack. However, Vivien Leigh’s fussy, affected performance is perhaps even more fascinating to a modern audience – the performers’ clash of acting styles synchronous with their onscreen characters’ culture clash.
