Oscar Winner Went All the Way from Wyler to Coppola in Film Career Spanning Half a Century

Teresa Wright and Matt Damon in 'The Rainmaker' Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright vs. Samuel Goldwyn: Nasty Falling Out.") "I'd rather have luck than brains!" Teresa Wright was quoted as saying in the early 1950s. That's understandable, considering her post-Samuel Goldwyn choice of movie roles, some of which may have seemed promising on paper.[1] Wright was Marlon Brando's first Hollywood leading lady, but that didn't help her to bounce back following the very public spat with her former boss. After all, The Men was released before Elia Kazan's film version of A Streetcar Named Desire turned Brando into a major international star. Chances are that good film offers were scarce. After Wright's brief 1950 comeback, for the third time in less than a decade she would be gone from the big screen for more than a year. »

Playing a movie star, she is shown dancing riotously in a nightclub. She throws away her fur and takes off her shoes. “Come on everybody, follow me,” she shouts as her drunken fiancé (Lex Barker) sits on the sidelines. They row and she storms off. Jaded journalist Marcello Mastroianni drives her away into the Roman night. After howling like a wolf and wandering the streets with a kitten on her head, they end up at the Trevi Fountain. The sight of the water cascading over her body electrified audiences. »
