About this item
Based on a play by Tennessee Williams (expanded from his one-act piece "Eccentricities of the Nightingale"). From childhood, Alma (Geraldine Page) has loved John Buchanan (Laurence Harvey). Repressed by the pressure of a minister father and a mother who has never recovered for a nervous breakdown, she keeps these feelings bottled up. Her life becomes unbearable when John returns from medical school and takes up with the sultry Rosa (Rita Moreno), the daughter of the casino owner who is as open and willing, as Alma is shy and repressed. Geraldine Page delivers a smoldering, stellar performance, which won her the Golden Globe(R) and the National Board of Review(R) Best Actress Awards. The film received 4 Academy Award(R) nominations, including Best Actress (Page), Best Supporting Actress (Una Merkel) and Best Music (Elmer Bernstein). Directed by DGA nominee, Peter Glenville ("Becket").
