A Streetcar on Broadway (2006)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Very good documentary on A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE and how it eventually wound up on Broadway. We get archival interviews with Kim Hunter and Elia Kazan as well as new interviews by Karl Malden and film historian Rudy Behlmer. The documentary starts off talking about how Tennessee Williams was a struggling writer before things finally started to pick up for him. We learn what influence working in New Orleans had on the writer in regards to this film. From here we learn how Kazan got involved with it and then we get to the casting, which included Jessica Tandy, Marlon Brando, Malden and Hunter. After this we hear about the original reviews and finally the legacy that this play had on those who saw it. This is an extremely entertaining look at what is now considered one of the greatest productions ever. The film does a very good job at giving one a great idea of the time and place including some great stuff about how Brando was nearly impossible to find as he was always staying at a different location. Hearing how Brando charmed his way onto Williams was quite funny as were the stories where Tandy would try to keep him under control. Behlmer talks about how they originally wanted John Garfield for the role of Stanley and there's also discussions about how most reviews were centered on the performance of Tandy with Brando only getting a few lines. Fans of the film will certainly enjoy seeing this documentary as it really gives you a great build-up for what would eventually make it to the film.
