Movie Reviews

A must have for Tennessee Williams fans
Mark D. R. Stern | Dallas, TX United States | 02/06/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

""The Glass Menagerie" was Tennessee Williams first successful play. The classic film made in 1950, Tennessee Williams hated. They had butchered his play and wrote a new happy ending to please the theater audiences. This filmed Broadway production is an excellent performance true to Tennessee Williams' original play as he wrote it. There is also a 1987 film adaptation of the play starring JoAnn Woodward and John Malchovich, which is true to the play.
In interviews and his memoirs, Tennesee Williams denied that the play was autobiographical. But every detail of the play is true to his younger life in St. Louis (with the blatant absence of his brother, Dakin).
This is one of Tennessee Williams' best."
