45. A Streetcar Named Desire (A)

Feels a little histrionic in places, but it remains a powerful story (another "four characters and limited locations" play, like Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?) with great performances. It's weird to look at Brando's contemptible character and imagine this made him a sex symbol, but there you go. I'd have to disagree with Elia Kazan though; the four minutes in the restored version add a lot to it.
