Tennessee Williams ON FILM

Tennessee Williams ON FILM by Wynn

“No American dramatist has had more plays adapted than Tennessee Williams, and few modern dramatists have witnessed as much controversy during the adaptation process. His Hollywood legacy, captured in such screen adaptations as A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Suddenly, Last Summer, reflects the sea change in American culture in the mid-twentieth century.”

-R. Barton Palmer and William Robert Bray from Hollywood’s Tennessee: The Williams Films and Postwar America
