Other Streetcar Renditions

Some images from previously done renditions of Streetcar, figured they'd be helpful (sorry I know they're black and white and hard to see details). Most are from the famous 1951 movie. Maybe we should all take sometime to watch it? I've seen it but only from the middle on...
Jessica Tandy as Blanche DuBois in the 1947 pre-Broadway tryout (won Tony award)
poker night
Marlon Brando as Stanley Kowalski
Vivien Leigh as Blanche DuBois

PS I will try to find more pictures later
