A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)

Poster: A Streetcar Named Desire
Director: Elia Kazan
Cast: Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, Vivien Leigh and Kim Hunter

This definitive adaptation of Tennessee Williams's play takes a dark look at daily life in a steamy New Orleans tenement slum. Broodingly sensual Brando made his mark with this film, bellowing his signature, “Stelllla!!” Ironically, he was the only actor of the four leads not to win an Oscar.
