Dragon Country
9 July 2006 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

"Dragon Country" is the proof that even someone like Tennessee Williams failed from time to time. It was a weak written-for-TV melodrama co-starring William Redfield and the unforgettable Kim Stanley in one of her very few on-screen performances.

Their one-act, "I Can't Imagine Tomorrow", is about a sick woman visited by a timid suitor who has lost his teaching job due to his psychiatric problems.

The DVD release of this only collaboration between Williams and Stanley gives us a rare opportunity to see and admire her amazing talent and charisma, even though she was not at her best here. Jon Krampner, her biographer, pointed out that by 1970, she was already unable to memorize her lines. (She was an alcoholic, and her self-induced illness destroyed much of her acting skills.) Several coaches were hired to try to get her to learn her lines, and they even wrote lines on every piece of furniture on the set. Glenn Jordan skilfully directed.

I recommend watching "The Goddess", "Séance on a Wet Afternoon" and "Frances" to see how stunning Miss Stanley was when she was in better shape.
