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.

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." After the Legion of Decency began boycotting the movie - Cardinal Francis Spellman having declared it "evil in concept" and "certain to exert an immo"

Watched in 2021: Movies (152 movies items)

" Director: Elia Kazan His 12th Movie. My 8th movie watched from the director. This is so Tennessee Williams. The dialogue, the characters, the innate feeling of depression. He has perfected such a story. It's a different route for Kazan but he helms it successfully, directing the three leads to be characters and performances rarely seen by 1956. Some of the editing choices are questionable and the cinematography is too average to really consider this high cinema. I would rank it in "

Terrible Taste (118 movies items)

" This film has most everything I like and present it in such a unique way. First of all the whole waiting to break the girl's virginity 'thing' is so hot and perverse at the same time but then this dark villain comes along, this foreigner who threatens to taste the forbidden fruit before the gardener who has looked after the green tree until it is just ripe. Damn good. "
