WHEN BLANCHE MET BRANDO: The Scandalous Story of 'A Streetcar Named Desire' promises something salacious but delivers something better…a witty, insightful probe of Tennessee Williams' most famous play in all its variations."-The Dallas Morning NewsThe play launched Marlon Brando's career, and the movie shot his star into the stratosphere. The film also redefined Vivien Leigh as another kind of Southern belle: Blanche as Scarlett on the skids. And WHEN BLANCHE MET BRANDO: The Scandalous Story of 'A Streetcar Named Desire' promises something salacious but delivers something better…a witty, insightful probe of Tennessee Williams' most famous play in all its variations."-The Dallas Morning NewsThe play launched Marlon Brando's career, and the movie shot his star into the stratosphere. The film also redefined Vivien Leigh as another kind of Southern belle: Blanche as Scarlett on the skids. And the movie as modern audiences know it barely escaped the unforgiving knife of censorship. "A Streetcar Named Desire" is more than a classic piece of American art-it's a daring and raw masterpiece as alive with meaning today as it was when first performed in 1947. Witty, rich with detail and exuberantly opinionated, WHEN BLANCHE MET BRANDO is the full behind-the-scenes story of "A Streetcar Named Desire." Moving from the opening of Tennessee Williams' groundbreaking play and the scandalized audiences it left on Broadway to its London debut to Elia Kazan's exceptional movie version, Staggs illuminates "Streetcar's" surprising complexities and the powerhouse personalities behind them. "Staggs' book is an excellent companion piece, giving a fine and often funny account of the many difficulties Williams' story faced on the way to becoming history."-Reuters Books, Literary Criticism~~Drama, When-Blanche-Met-Brando~~Sam-Staggs, , , , , , , , , , St. Martin's Press
