A Streetcar Named Desire 1951
Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) steps off the train in New Orleans in a cloud of befuddled, aristocratic airs. Leaning on the kindness of a stranger, she asks for directions to Elysian Fields in the French Quarter. She boards the street car named Desire and ventures forth to find her sister.
Stella Kowalski (Kim Hunter) doesn't expect her elder sister's visit, but seems cautiously pleased to see her. She proudly points out her husband Stanley (Marlon Brando), a hulking brute of a man who horrifies (and compels) Blanche.
Thus begins a delicate descent into misery for all parties. Stanley takes an immediate dislike to Blanche, while his war buddy Mitch (Karl Malden) takes a shine to her. Blanche manipulates them all...but her facade is crumbling.
