L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 38:1954 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK-ADS & "A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE"


MY SELECTION NO. 38 FOR BEST MOVIES OF THE FORTIES AND FIFTIES IS "A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE" STARRING 'MARLON BRANDO,


A Streetcar Named Desire is a 1951 American drama film, adapted from Tennessee Williams's Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 play of the same name. It tells the story of a southern belle, Blanche Dubois, who, after encountering a series of personal losses, leaves her aristocratic background seeking refuge with her sister and brother-in-law in a dilapidated New Orleans tenement.
Upon release of the film, Marlon Brando, virtually unknown at the time of the play’s casting, rose to prominence as a major Hollywood movie star. The film marked the first of Marlon Brando's four consecutive
Academy Award nominations for Best Actor and earned an estimated $4,250,000 at the US and Canadian box office in 1951, making it the fifth biggest hit of the year.[3] In 1999, A Streetcar Named Desire was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
