    Tennessee Williams' South (1973)
    Features Not Specified
The Passion And The Power Of An American Original.

A Streetcar Named Desire: 2 Disc Special Edition (1951)
A Streetcar Named Desire: The Original Director's Version is the Elia Kazan/Tennessee Williams film moviegoers would have seen had not Legion of Decency censorship occurred at the last minute. It features three minutes of previously unseen footage underscoring, among other things, the sexual tension between Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) and Stanley Kowalski (Marlon Brando), and Stella Kowalski's (Kim Hunter) passion for husband Stanley.

Cat On A Hot Tin Roof: Deluxe Edition (1958)
The raw emotions and crackling dialogue of Tennessee Williams' 1955 Pulitzer Prize play rumble like a thunderstorm in this film version, whose fiery performances and grown-up themes made it one of 1958's top box-office hits. Paul Newman earned his first Oscar® nomination as troubled ex-sports hero Brick. In a performance that marked a transition to richer adult roles, Elizabeth Taylor snagged her second. Her Maggie the Cat is a vivid portrait of passionate loyalty.

Sweet Bird Of Youth (1962)
Handsome Chance Wayne (Paul Newman) never found the Hollywood stardom he craved, but he's always been a star with the ladies. Now, back in his sleepy, sweaty Gulf Coast hometown, he's involved with two of them: a washed-up, drug-and-vodka-addled movie queen (Geraldine Page). And the girl he left behind (Shirley Knight) ...and in trouble.

The Night Of The Iguana (1964)
"A man has got just so much in his emotional bank balance. But mine has run out." In a remote Mexican seacoast town, a fallen Episcopal priest (Richard Burton) struggles to pull his shattered life together. And three women - an earthy hotel owner, an ethereal artist and a hot-eyed willful teenager - can help save him. Or destroy him.

Baby Doll (1956)
Times are tough for cotton-miller Archie (Karl Malden) but at least he has his child-bride (Carroll Baker), who'll soon be his wife in title and truth. The one-year agreement keeping them under the same roof - yet never in the same bed - is about to end. But a game with a sly business rival (Eli Wallach) is about to begin.

The Roman Spring Of Mrs. Stone (1961)
Widow Karen Stone (Vivien Leigh) is wealthy and beautiful. Her acting successes are a memory. She lives alone in a luxury apartment overlooking the Roman steps where romantic liaisons take place. And she waits.

Tennessee Williams' South (1973)
The brutes and the belles. The gadflies and the good ol' boys. The taboos and the profound truths. They're all part of the Tennessee state of mind - a realm of places, personalities and ideas.

Williams is front and center for this exploration, reading from his works, placing them in the context of his life, and serving as guide in visits to his career-shaping refuge in New Orleans and his latter-day writing quarters in Key West. Also, dramatizations by distinguished actors - including Jessica Tandy, Broadway's original Blanche DuBois, in a recreation of her A Streetcar Named Desire triumph - give flesh-and-bone immediacy to some of the writer's famed works. In his own words. In his own places. The resilient character and memorable characters of one of our greatest writers reside in Tennessee Williams' South.
