A Streetcar Named Desire

Vivien Leigh, Marlon Brando, Kim Hunter
Screenplay by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Elia Kazan

"You know what luck is? Luck is believing you're lucky"

"I can't stand a naked light bulb, any more than I can a rude remark
or a vulgar action"

"Stella! Oh, Stella! Stella for Star!"

Suddenly remembering everything that is fabulous about Tennessee Williams

    I am not trying to compare ... but ... i have a feeling, considering your Streetcar post, that you would love, if you don't already, some of the 'kitchen sink' Brit plays from the 60s.

    In particluar 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning' by Allan Sillitoe and starring Albert Finney and the beautiful Shirley-Anne Field. Our hero says in the play, "Mam called me barmy when I told her I fell of a gasometer for a bet. But I'm not barmy, I'm a fighting pit prop that wants a pint of beer, that's me. But if any knowing bastard says that's me I'll tell them I'm a dynamite dealer waiting to blow the factory to kingdom come. Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not because they don't know a bloody thing about me! God knows what I am."

    Also 'Day in the Death of Joe Egg' and 'Look Back in Anger' really brilliant brit Theatre, in black and white but as powerful now as they were then. Get them out and watch them i promise you wan't be disappointed!

    Also your NYC pics make me 'spiritual home-sick'
