--STARRING VIVIEN LEIGH AND MARLON BRANDO--
Best known for her turn as Scarlett O'Hara, Vivien Leigh shines just as brightly here as the fading and delusional Southern belle Blache DuBois, in the definitive adaptation of Tennesee Wiliiams' iconic play. Informed by her own struggles with bipolar disorder, Leigh's rendition of Blanche is bracing in its realism. Opposite her is Marlon Brando as the brutish Stanley Kowalski, in a portrayal that earned him the first of four consecutive Best Actor nominations.
