Pop trivia might have you believe that Kazan’s version of A Streetcar Named Desire would have been much better had Jessica Tandy been allowed to transplant her stage performance to screen. However, for anyone with a soft spot for Vivian Leigh’s staunch Southern belle act, Kazan’s film still renders the play into a unique slice of Hollywood melodrama… It endures as a haunting dissection of female desire and denial—a stunning and vicious pendulum of violence: physical, sexual, and linguistic.

For all its considerable power, it’s dated and uneven in basic ways. Most of this can’t be blamed on Kazan or Brando or Tennessee Williams, all of whom did everything they could under the circumstances, but a lot can be blamed on things that have happened in our culture since 1951. As a job of direction, Streetcar is packed with raw energy and ingenuity, but it also represents a curious halfway house between Kazan’s stage and film work.
