Movie Tip #17 - A Streetcar Named Desire

Director: Elia Kazan

Starring: Marlon Brando, Vivien Leigh, Kim Hunter

Description: Blanche Dubois (Vivien Leigh)goes to visit her pregnant sister (Kim Hunter) and husband Stanley (Marlon Brando) in New Orleans. Stanley doesn't like her, and starts pushing her for information on some property he know was left to the sisters. He discovers she has mortgaged the place and spent all the money, and wants to find out all he can about her. Even more friction develops between the two while they are in the apartment together...

Review: I thought, let's go for a real oldie this week. This is my favourite classic movie (hello, it's from 1951!). The story is very simple, its black and white and the movie takes place in just a couple different locations. Be honest, Marlon Brando was a very handsome man in his younger years (reminds me a little bit of Jeff Corwin...hahaha). And his performance is great. He is able to accurately depict the emotion and rage that his character feels. And "STELLAAAAAAAA!"..... just a classic one-liner.
