This week on The Video Score, we've got all your new major video releases including an Oscar winner and a horror movie people didn't think too much of. There are also three great classics coming out, two of which are on Blu-ray. "A Streetcar Named Desire" is our pick of the week, just edging out Georges "Papa Georges" Méliès' "A Trip to the Moon," which should seem very timely if you checked out "Hugo" last year.
"A Streetcar Named Desire" (1951)
Director: Elia Kazan
Cast: Marlon Brando, Vivien Leigh
In the classic play by Tennessee Williams, brought to the screen by Elia Kazan, faded Southern belle Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) comes to visit her pregnant sister, Stella (Kim Hunter), in a seedy section of New Orleans. Stella's boorish husband, Stanley Kowalski (Marlon Brando), not only regards Blanche's aristocratic affectations as a royal pain but also thinks she's holding out on inheritance money that rightfully belongs to Stella.
