Abstract
The author describes how three provactive plays of Tennesse Williams-- A Streetcar Named Desire, Sudenly Last Summer, and Night of the Iguana-- were adapted into well-known movies of the 1950s and early 1960s that would both meet the decency standards of the time and still be mature enough to help the film industry recapture an audience that was turning to television for entertainment.
