REMAKE OF A CLASSIC FALLS SHORT
1 March 2020 | by ldanvSee all my reviews

The TV remake of A Streetcar Named Desire does not measure up to the classic film starring Vivien Leigh, one of the finest actresses who has ever lived. Ann- Margret gets and A for Effort in this remake, but her essential personality is simply too robust to portray the fragile Blanche. The essence of Blanche Dubois is great delicacy and vulnerability. Ann Margret is about as delicate and vulnerable as an atomic bomb. The rape scene is not convincing, since anyone who tried to rape Ann-Margret would probably end up in the hospital. Treat Williams is by no means as primal as the crude Brando; he almost seems a gentleman in comparison, which lowers the dramatic tension. This film is well-acted and well-directed, but does not compare with the Brando/Leigh original.
