Vivien Leigh is the consummate actress. I fully believed every moment of her as Blanche, and she strikes an undeniable chord of genius in her confession to Mitch. I get chills just thinking about it. And Marlon Brando as that ***** Stanley Kowalski...that final confrontation between the two of them still haunts me. He's magnetic: animalistic, erotic, alluring, repugnant... And the two of them together is electric.
This is my favorite play, so I was thrilled to see it come to life so magnificently, and under such great direction.
Also... Not to wax on about Vivien Leigh, but I can't get over her performance as Blanche. Her final break breaks ME. I...I honestly think she's one of the most talented actresses Hollywood has EVER seen. It seems almost unfair that such immense talent could be packaged in such an exquisitely beautiful form, but she did it as Scarlett and did it again as Blanche. Amazing.
Also, anyone who says that Vivien Leigh won Oscars for playing basically the same character is ignorant AF. Aside from their accents and geographical origins, Scarlett and Blanche couldn't be further apart.
