"You know what luck is? Luck is believing you're lucky, that's all... To hold a front position in this rat-race, you've got to believe you are lucky."

A Streetcar Named Desire is a compelling, mesmerising drama that exhibits a benchmark in revolutionary screen performances. This formidable tour de force hasn't dated one iota: even after several decades the film's prominent themes an... read more

A Streetcar Named Desire is a classic that I could watch repeatedly and not get bored. I knew I was going to like this film but I had no idea that I was going to like it as much as I really did. I loved it so much that it made me realise that it is a classic that I should have watched before when I first got into classic films. A Streetcar Named Desire is a story about brutality, aggression, betra... read more

This to me is Vivien Leighs greatest role, Vivien as Blanche was a brillant performance. Stanley was played by Marlon Brando, who also gave a great performance. This is a gritty story brought to life by some brilliant performances, this movie still holds up today and deserved it's recognition.” read more

"The whole thing kind of went over my head a little bit, but the acting is definitely as amazing as everyone says it is! Vivien Leigh is just.. wow.. no words honestly!! Also, I've never seen a Marlon Brando film before.. he was definitely more than just a sexy man. He was an extremely mature and talented and sexy man! :D I have never read/seen the play, so it was a completely new production to me and I think it would honestly have benefited if I'd seen it on stage before. I'd probably understand"

" Quote: Yes, I admired Marlon Brando and I know that he influenced James Dean and he really kind of changed the world of film acting with his naturalistic style, but it was because of Vivien Leigh's performance as Blanche DuBois that I would put that as one of my favorite movies; because of her dialog, the Tennessee Williams dialog, the music, Kazan's direction, and Vivien Leigh's delivery of lines like -- I'm paraphrasing -- but when she says, "the human heart, how can that be straight?", you "
