Baby Doll (18-Dec-1956)|
Director: Elia Kazan
Writer: Tennessee Williams
Music Composed by: Kenyon Hopkins
Keywords: Dark Comedy
Set on a crumbling plantation, Archie Lee's marriage to Baby Doll may not be consummated until her 20th birthday. But she finds Archie repulsive, and a neighbor, Silva Vacarro, is determined to seduce her before then. The film is merely suggestive yet it is highly erotic. Received Oscar nominations for Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adaptation, and Best Cinematography. Francis Cardinal Spellman denounced it as "revolting... immoral and corrupting... evil in concept."
