(1960, Sidney Lumet) Ex-New Orleans blues player Marlon Brando sports a snakeskin jacket as he drifts into a small Southern town and an affair with storekeeper Anna Magnani (Rome Open City), while simultaneously being pursued by old plantation family black sheep Joanne Woodward. Adapted from Williams’ Orpheus Descending. Approx. 121 min. 35mm. 


“One of the best films made from Williams’s material… a mood picture, where, if you pay close attention, you can feel the lights come up and fade away to match the eloquence of the speeches.”
– David Thomson
