A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
November 5, 2013  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

TCM is celebrating Vivien Leigh’s birthday today by presenting two of her best and most iconic roles, and films, in a lengthy prime-time double bill. First up: Elia Kazan’s big-screen version of Tennessee Williams’ sexy, swampy, atmospheric masterpiece, starring Marlon Brando in an era-changing performance as Stanley Kowalski, and Leigh as Blanche DuBois, one of the two women who drive Stanley to fits of screaming. (The other, of course, is Kim Hunter as STELLA!!!)
