Six Week Film School: Classic Broadway Stage to Stylized Hollywood Screen

Based on the play by Tennessee Williams, this renowned drama follows troubled former schoolteacher Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) as she leaves small-town Mississippi and moves in with her sister, Stella Kowalski (Kim Hunter), and her husband, Stanley (Marlon Brando), in New Orleans. Blanche's flirtatious Southern-belle presence causes problems for Stella and Stanley, who already have a volatile relationship, leading to even greater conflict in the Kowalski household. Directed by Elia Kazan. FREE to attend. PG / 127 min.

Join your professor, Dr. McBride, along with Dave Krostal for a discussion following the film.

The Six Week Film School is co-sponsored by Illinois State University's Department of English and the Normal Theater. Notes on this class screening can be found under Six Week Film School.
