Marlon Brando was a little-known actor when he was cast in the Broadway production of Tennessee Williams’s play; the film adaptation made him a star. “As Stanley, the brutish brother-in-law of fading belle Blanche DuBois (Vivienne Leigh), Brando is magnetic, even, and almost especially, when he’s barely doing anything at all.

The film begins and ends with blissful...   More >
