Archie Lee Meighan, middle-aged cotton gin owner, can hardly wait for the 20th birthday of his childish bride Baby Doll, when he'll be allowed to consummate the marriage...he thinks.

EW's 25 Most Controversial Movies (25 movies items)

"THE PLOT A Mississippi cotton-gin owner (Eli Wallach) humiliates a competitor (Karl Malden) by attempting to seduce the man's still-virgin wife (Carroll Baker). THE CONTROVERSY Written by Tennessee Williams, the film struck Catholic leaders as lewd. (A similar flap greeted 1943's The Outlaw over Jane Russell's bust.) New York's Cardinal Spellman forbade the faithful to see it ''under pain of sin.'' Some theaters pulled it, but it eventually earned four Oscar nominations."

Films Condemned by the Legion of Decency (75 movies items)

"Elia Kazan adaption of a Tennessee Williams screenplay. The story of a voluptuous but virginal child bride (Carroll Baker) caught between her husband (Karl Malden) and his devious business rival, Silva Vacarro (Eli Wallach). Time Magazine called the film "just about the dirtiest American-made motion picture that has ever been legally exhibited." Kazan and Williams happily capitalized on this notoriety: after the Legion of Decency began boycotting the movie - Cardinal Francis Spellman declaring"

Incredible Movies That Should Be WAY More Famous (52 movies items)

" Baby Doll is another one of those movies that I can't believe was actually allowed to be released in the uptight, excessively moral 1950s. Because it was met with much fervor from anti-obscenity puritan groups, it wasn't really given a chance to be widely seen. But I think Elia Kazan captures an amazing energy and sexual tension between Carroll Baker and Eli Wallach. Karl Malden is also really good as an angry, humiliated and deranged husband. Baby Doll is weirdly similar to Lolita, as it's"
