The story of this book famously recounts actually how the promiscuous and faded Blanche DuBois is pressed over an edge by her brutal and sexy brother Stanley Kowalski. The resolutely genteel Blanche is stunned by the lower-class lifestyle as well as by the aggressive behavior of Stanley. The Stanley’s role is so objective that his existence is diminished by a lack of some visual performance, but James Farentino’s Stanley is exceptional.
