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. But rival owner Silva Vaccaro suspects Archie of burning his gin down, and takes an erotic form of Sicilian vengeance.

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"

" The Catholic Legion of Decency condemned Tennessee Williams' lurid tale of a thumb-sucking child bride and the men who lusted for her."

"Ambientada en el húmedo y caluroso Mississippi, narra la historia de un hombre maduro casado con una joven de 19 años, a cuyo padre -un rico terrateniente- ha prometido que la respetará hasta que cumpla 20 años. La historia comienza cuando falta un día para que se cumpla el plazo."

100 Essential Female Film Performances (99 movies items)

"Carroll Baker Playing a child-like, hyper-sexual nymphet in a Tennessee Williams adaptation might not have been a sure-fire way to launch a respectable career in the 1950s. But for Actor’s Studio alum Baker (who was Williams’ second choice behind Marilyn Monroe), it did just that -– she became a genuine cultural phenomenon.
