AFI #47 – A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire - PosterA Streetcar Named Desire

1951

Directed by Elia Kazan

Netflix says… After losing the family plantation to creditors, aging Southern belle Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) travels to New Orleans seeking solace in her sister, Stella (Kim Hunger). Instead, she goes toe-to-toe with Stella’s brute of a husband, Stanley (Marlon Brando). Leigh, Hunter and Karl Malden all took home Oscars for their work in this sizzling adaptation of Tennessee Williams’s classic rumination on carnal attraction and faded gentility.

This is one on the list that I’d never seen before. I’m not sure that I’ve ever had a desire to see it either. I don’t know why I’ve felt that way. This is supposed to be a classic. It’s supposed to have Brando and Leigh in two of their most iconic roles. Guess it just didn’t do much for me.A Streetcar Named Desire - Stella
