Tennessee Williams and director Kazan took two of the playwright's one act works and turned them into this blackly comic melodrama about a bored teen bride, her clumsy husband and their slyly seductive neighbour. The chaos of the couple's house mirrors the broken-down morality of the characters, while the hot 'n' sweaty Deep South setting keeps passions close to the boil. Wonderful stuff.
