The film is technically glossy, seamlessly performed by its stars, and has the advantage of being adapted from one of [Tennessee] Williams’s best plays

Starring Hollywood heartthrobs Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor!  Set in the Mississippi heat amidst a family party gone awry, this Tennessee Williams adaptation is a sweltering melodrama of unfulfilled desires and simmering frustration. Produced despite Hollywood censorship, this sultry film is a gem from an era of longing glances and coded insinuations.  

Directed by Richard Brooks.
